    Just recently, I came across an attribute (coulda been a tag) that allows you to make a chunk of text scrollable without using <textarea> or <iframe>. I think it could be an attribute that applies to a <td> or <p> tag but I just can't remember. I searched through all my usual resources but came up empty.

    I MUST find it! Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

    (I just have to add that I got back from a 2 week honeymoon in Peru last week which has a lot to do with the memory loss! :classic

    If you are going to use that make sure you add width and height as well.
