    Yes you can use javascript to do this or preferably JQuery to animate the elements.

    Something like this
    <!doctype html>
    <script src=""></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(function() {
      $('.offscreen').animate({left: 0}, 5000, function() {
    	$(this).css({position: 'relative', top: 'auto', left: 'auto'});
    <style type="text/css">
    form {
      position: relative;
      width: 400px;
      overflow: hidden;
      border: 1px solid #ececec;
      height: 400px;
    div.offscreen {
    	position: absolute;
    	left: 600px;
    	<div class="offscreen" id="textbox">
    		<input type="text" name="firstname" id="firstname" />
    		<textarea name="firstname" id="comment" rows="4" cols="40">

    Open in new window

    Can you please make the <article id=artGameRules> section fly in from right (or left) but without causing any browser scrollbars to appear
