    Exclamation Help with ul tags outside div tag !

    I have a parent div tag, inside which is a table tag. Inside the div, there is some ul with li tags which has some icons over it. The parent div is declared scroll as auto. The parent div tag is set to say, 400p x 400px. The table width and height may vary.So, obviously scroll bars can be seen. How do I set the ul with li tags which must be appearing always outside the parent div?

    Please HELP ! Thanks.

    Try with
    display: inline-block;
    margin-left: 400px;

    That would work if there was only going to be one <ul>, and if the div inside the table is always 400x400px and the table has no border, margin, or padding.
    But if the div is in a table with a variable width, that won't work to keep the second <ul> outside the table.

    My first question is - why do you need a table? and tthe second would be why do you want scroll bars inside the document/

    If you really need a table, then I would use more divs - one to hold the table, the one inside the table, and one for the second <ul>. I'd give them percentages instead of specific px dimensions.
