You can use frames and also the browser will automatically scroll your page, the application need not handle that.

hello keny2003,

you could set the width of your page but not the height. Height depends of the content of the page.
And why you want to fix the height?

euh, that example you gave is not flash, only the top is flash ....

scrollbars can only to be used in a frame, a td can not contain scrollbars ...

if you want to use a fixed height you can use an iframe

hello keny2003,

The only way is to use IFRAME. I know, it's a frame but a special frame that can be anywhere in the html page.

hello keny2003,

Your are right, IFRAME  was added in the HTTP 1.1 protocol (RFC 2616), and netscape 4.7 implement HTTP 1.1 except IFRAME. For microsoft, they implement IFRAME since IE 4.0.

If you really need your site work on netscape 4.7 you could use IFRAME and if the user browse your site with netscape 4.7 then use layout. It's more work but you could do what you want without using frames.
