Click middle of vertical scroll bar
Page 2 shows lines 36 - 75

Hi Elliot123,

There's not much you can do to control scrolling.  The browsers handle that depending on length of the content and the height of the line and the zoom applied by the user.  In short, it's not something you can control.

What you can do is not allow the above to be controlled by the user.  That means switching to Flash or using AJAX to "page" the content.
