I had seen an inquiry for this "Left-sided Scrollbars" Didn't know where to throw this and I wanted to make it known to anyone who is interested.


It's very simple and a few tweaks to your alignment codes and there ya go I.e. instead of leaving the default of left-alignment to take over (because with this tiny code adjustment, everything gets thrown over to the right), you have to HARD code stuff to be aligned left.

<html dir="rtl">

I invented this trick a long time ago:

No need to "hard code" anything, just place your content in a DIV tag with DIR="ltr".

Haha, I came up with another way of doing something similar, I can make it have 2 horizontal & 2 vertical scrollbars. Although I never actually used it on anything I ever made.

Because we are creatures of habit, these are all really bad ideas. You'll be sorry. :D
