Anyone have any thoughts on how I can get rid of the scroller on the bottom of the 'news and events ' window div on the left side of this page? :

getting rid of the horizontal scroller on a div in IE...

Try putting your overflow: auto specs in the div "event" instead of in the "newsandeventsscroll-index".

#Event 
	{
		padding:2px;
		float:left;
		font-size:8pt;
		width:110px;
		border-left:1px dotted #000;
	}

#newsandeventsscroll-index
		{
			width:250px;
			padding:5PX;
			height:275px;
			overflow:auto;			
		}

Oh, btw... I opened your page both in Mozilla and IE. In Mozilla the news and events come NEXT to Noo article testsss and in IE that box is UNDER the Noo article testsss. You gotta work around that bug still.
Page looks ok though! Clean and simple. I like that.

getting rid of the horizontal scroller on a div in IE...

thanks for all the replies - tried moving the overflow to a different div and it still looked like crap in IE. Thus I've resolved to simply split the style sheet, one for NS and one for IE, via javascript (the code is up in the head of the link above if anyone needs such a thing). I simply couldn't be bothred trying to hack and keep together one css sheet right now... I didn't know about the overflow-y property for IE.

Only problem is now in NS the scroller sticks out a little to the right of the whole div... making the div that wraps around it wider isn't much of an option... any thoughts on how to fix that one?

the link again...
