    Hi, I'm trying to make a webpage so that the main content area scrolls within the bounding space. However when I split the table that contains the scroll bar I get a horizontle scrollbar in IE6...its not a problem in firefox...you can see what I'm talking about here.

    any help as to why I get this extra scrollbar in IE6 would be greatly appreciated...I'm fairly new to this so a simple explain and example helps tremendously!

    thanks!

    If I remember correctly, IE6 always adds both scroll bars to tables that overflow.

    But if you were to use <iframe> instead, I think that works better or try <div> instead.

    In fact, you should not really be using tables for layout. Tables are for tabular data.

    I wouldnt touch that at all if I were you mfourn, do a bit of research into jquery its pretty easy to pick up the basics and you'll find little plugins to emulate scrollbars and things - much more browser friendly and up to date
