I have structure something like this:

<fieldset>
   <label.................</label>
   <div style="height:120px;overflow:auto">
        <table>
                  <tr>
                        <td></td>
                  </tr>
        </table>
  </div>
</fieldset>

Overflow for the DIV works when I am hardcoding the values, here for instance 120px, but when I give it in percentages overflow is completeley ignored. But when I remove <fieldset> tag it works fine both with px and %.

But since i cannot remove fieldset, can anyone guide me, how do I go about.

Regards

Gops

% heights are relative to the parent. Therefore, the fieldset needs a height style.
