I guess this is a simple question. I'm making a web sight with frames. To the left I have one frame that is longer than one screen, and because of that I nead to use scrolling. That part is easy, but I would like to get the scrollbar to the left of the frame rather than to the right. Is that posible? And if yes, how can I do it?

From the answer to "Scrollbar in old? brouwsers" from 19/12/98 it look's like it is posible to do it when making the frame, but not when displaying it. If thats not the case, Netscape  should impement this posibilety soon.

You know, a negative answer is still an answer.

What MasseyM meant with "Unless yoiu have the source code", is that if you have the source code to the *browser* ie Netscape, you can rewrite it to get the desired effect.

By using DHTML nothing is really impossible anymore (well, at least when it comes to screen layout and design).  You can make your own scrolling device.
