Using plain XHTML,  I am designing a web page where the client wants a large amount of text in a small area, so I need some sort of scroll functionality for the user. Other than the arrows used on the side of the window, what are my possibilities?

Thank you

Hi J

You could use a DIV tag set up like this

<div style="height:200;width:400;overflow=auto">test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test </div>

the overflow=auto makes the div maintain its specified size in this case height 200 width 400 and adds a scroll bar if the amount of text in the div goes past this.
