You'll need some JavaScript for that. Do a search for "JavaScript scrollbars."


There exist CSS statements for changing the scrollbar appearance, but

One important thing you must know about a colored scrollbar is that it does not do not work in Gecko-based browsers (Firefox, Netscape Navigator, Mozilla): It is an Internet Explorer's only property. It is not a standard property or a proprietary property. According to W3C, these properties are illegal: they are neither defined in any CSS specification nor are they marked as proprietary (by prefixing them with "-vendor-").

thanks i'll give that a go, i knoiw this sounds stupid. But I'm still new to this css i used to work the old school way of designing using tables. is there a way where i can kind of split a div into kind off colums? because I've tried using seperate floats (4) lined next to each other but there just not as easy to postion as table cells
