Hello,

I'm having issues making the <ul class="demo2"> below scrollable, is there any way to just make the UL element instead of the entire DIV scrollable?

set fixed height to the UL and set the CSS overflow like this
ul {
float:left;
margin:0;
padding:0;
width:220px;

height:50px;
overflow-x:hidden;
overflow-y:scroll;
}
