Hi Everyone,

I am in the process of writing a web site which features many web pages that are longer ('heigher') than the available screen area. As my audience is likely to be people with little computer skills I am hoping to find a javascript that will indicate to viewers that there is more content to be viewed.

To this end I am hoping to find a script that helps users to scroll over pages.

Ideally I would like some graphic (like an arrow) to float on screen toward the bottom right. When the user passes their mouse over the arrow I would like the screen to scroll down.

Obviously a second arrow toward the top right of the screen would also be helpful, allowing viewers to scroll upward when the mouse is over the "up" arrow.

If anybody out there knows of a script that loosely (or tightly) fits this description could you please let me know?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Is the scrollbar not enough? I don't think users are that fool not to recognize the scrollbar and its up and down arrows. If your audience has really little computer knowledge, you can put a little note at the top informing them to use the scrollbar to scroll down to the bottom of the page.
