"Buffer" area in scrolling layer? - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

Hi, I'm using a layer as a text box and I've set the overflow to "scroll". I don't like that the text is butted up against the scrollbar on the right margin. Is there a way to put in some "buffer" space so that the text doesn't wrap so darn close to the scroll bar? If so, how would I go about that? Thank you in advance!...

    Default "Buffer" area in scrolling layer?

    Hi,

    I'm using a layer as a text box and I've set the overflow to "scroll". I
    don't like that the text is butted up against the scrollbar on the right
    margin. Is there a way to put in some "buffer" space so that the text doesn't
    wrap so darn close to the scroll bar? If so, how would I go about that?

    Thank you in advance!

    Padding makes space inside a box. Margin makes space outside.

    Problem is, IE renders these parameters differently from other browsers. Lots of data on the web about this problem.

    On a page with a valid and complete doctype, only IE5x and below have the
    problem with this, and if you use IE conditional comments, you can trap that
    behavior in those antique versions very nicely.

    Thanks for the feedback. Can anyone outline how I'd go about this padding with code?

    Thanks again,

    div#scrollDiv { padding-right:20px; }

    (assuming your scrolling div has that ID)
