    Want a vertical scrollbar on a page included within another page

    The body of my page is represented by a table of 1 row, 2 columns (67/33% split). The right-hand-column has its' own table consisting of 2 rows. In the first row, I have included a web page which contains newsfeed content. I want to limit the height of this cell to 50-75% of the overall page height, because the second row will have a small image, and I don't want the newsfeed to cause my overall page length to be long & sprawling. I have NOT been able to force the vertical scrollbar to appear on this included web page. I've experimented with many height options on the cells of this right-hand-column, but my browser (IE) always displays the full content of the feed.

    I am new to design, so any suggestions will be appreciated, but please go easy on the terminology!

    Here's a snippet:

    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" width="100%">
    <tr>
    <td width="67%" valign="top">
    <h1>Home</h1>
    <p>...body content ...</p>
    </td>
    <td height="700" width="33%" valign="top">
    <table height="700" >
    <tr height="51%">
    <td><!--webbot bot="Include" U-Include="newsfeed.htm" TAG="BODY" startspan -->
    </td>
    </tr>
    <tr height="100">
    <td><img border="0" src="images/MsSpacer.gif" width="1" height="100"></td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    Thanks, but 'style="overflow:auto;"' didn't do anything. Any other suggestions?
