Ok i have a table of a set height, and basically when the table gets filled up with text i don't want it to increase in size, i want a scroll bar to come up instead... So bascially i'm asking how do you make a scroll bar for a table... i was thinking it would be a simple command in <td> or <tr> but i haven't been able to find anything about it.....
