    scrolling text in a into a fixed table

    spudulike
      i need to create a scrolling text area on a fixed website size, that doesn't shift everything within dreamweaver and everytime i draw a table and insert a div tag, and use overflow, and put my text in, i preview in explorer and the scroll works, but and this is the pain, inside the dreamweaver html page i'm working on the more text i put in the table the more it expandes, and knock all the other tables / adverts out.

      I found some text on the forum but dont really understand it?
      can anyone help.

      <div style="width:200px; height:100px; overflow:auto; background:white;
      padding:22px; border:1px solid #000; line-height:50px;">
