    Hi

    Scrillbars in tables wont work X browser, table height is deprecated and
    will also fail in some browsers, you should allow a table to collapse
    around it's contents.

    What you should do in that case is use Dreamweaver's "Draw Layer" feature,
    and then place your table -inside that- and set the overflow attribute for
    the layer to whatever you need. For more about layers, tables, and
    scrollers, visit www.projectseven.com for some unique and helpful tips and
    work-arounds.

    Hi Arthur

    The height applies to divs also, if you leave the height out then the
    div will expand\contract to suit the content, If you rely on div
    scrollbars it will fail in NN4.x as that browser cannot handle that.
