change it to "overflow:auto";

and it should automatically scroll once it goes over the 960px width.

Actually I think it is automatically by default set as "auto so you could remove that line altogether.

What mode is IE rendering the page in? That feature requires "standards mode" of IE7 or newer. (If you don't know how to check that, please post a link to an example page.)

No. The default value of the "overflow" property is "visible" for most elements, including <div>s.

try overflow-y:scroll;
and/or
overflow-x:scroll;


and test it also in quirks mode by replacing your doctype with something like this

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC>

..after you changed to quirks it should work in ie7
(ie6 doesn't work at all i believe)
