Hello,

I'm trying to make a <div> left column scrollable just like google image search:

http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=scrolling+column+in+css+max+height+of+screen&hl=en&safe=off&client=firefox-a&hs=GF4&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&prmd=imvns&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.,cf.osb&biw=1540&bih=856&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi#q=burger&um=1&hl=en&safe=off&client=firefox-a&hs=gvO&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&tbm=isch&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&fp=e0828f5a55a53c6a&biw=1540&bih=856

Notice that the scrollbar appears when the mouse hovers over and the scroll bar is always the available height of the screen from the header.

How could I begin to achieve this? Is it a bit of jquery or just css?

Cheers
