Head out to http://www.brucegust.com/NHBC/mobile/about.php on your tablet.

You'll notice along the top, I've got a menu that you can sweep from left to right. Problem is, I can't figure out how to extend the scrollable area so it comes within 10px of the end.

Here's the portion of the stylesheet:

#scroll_bar {
height:27px;
width:1024px;
}

#makeMeScrollable div.scrollableArea *
{
      position: relative;
      display: block;
      float: left;
      margin-left: 5px;
      padding: 0;
      /* If you don't want the images in the scroller to be selectable, try the following
         block of code. It's just a nice feature that prevent the images from
         accidentally becoming selected/inverted when the user interacts with the scroller. */
      -webkit-user-select: none;
      -khtml-user-select: none;
      -moz-user-select: none;
      -o-user-select: none;
      user-select: none;
}


#scroll_caps
{
position:relative;
margin:auto;
width:950px;
height:27px;
}

#scroll_caps_left {
position:absolute;
left:3px;
width:17px;
height:27px;
background-image:url(images/left_arrow.png);
background-repeat:none;
}

#scroll_caps_right {
position:absolute;
right:3px;
width:17px;
height:27px;
background-image:url(images/right_arrow.png);
background-repeat:none;
}
      
#makeMeScrollable
{
margin-left:auto;
margin-right:auto;
height: 27px;
width:1000px;
}

...and here's the HTML:

<div id="scroll_container">
      <div id="scroll_caps_left"></div>
      <div id="scroll_caps_right"></div>
      <div id="scroll_caps">
            <div id="makeMeScrollable">
            <a href="index.php"><img src="images/link_home.png" border="0"/></a><a href="about.php"><img src="images/link_about.png" border="0"/></a><a href="visitors.php"><img src="images/link_guests.png" border="0"/></a><a href="ministries.php"><img src="images/link_programs.png" border="0"/></a><a href="children.php"><img src="images/link_children.png" border="0"><a href="https://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=newnhbccalendar%40gmail.com&ctz=America/Chicago "><img src="images/link_calendar.png" border="0"/></a><a href="contact.php"><img src="images/link_contact.png" border="0"/></a></div>
      </div>
</div>

Looks like setting these two to 420px works

#scroll_caps {
position: relative;
margin: auto;
width: 420px;
height: 27px;
}

#makeMeScrollable {
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
height: 27px;
width: 420px;
}
