Hi there,
I am creating an html page. I have a table, and in one of them i have enabled the scrollbar using
<div style="width:600px;height:400px;overflow:auto;">
However i would like to show the scrollbar and enable it only when the mouse is over that cell.
Anyone know how to do that in javascript?

{
      document.getElementById('divOne').style.overflowY='scroll';
}
function mouseout_divOne()
