I almost went mad trying to find out why my colored scrollbar doesn't appear in IE. I played around with TopStyle's option a bit and found out that it has to do with the doctype. It displays fine in HTML 4.0 and 4.01 Transitional, but in no other doctype.

Please, is there a workaround or do i have to dismiss my colored scrollbar if i want an XHTML compliant site?

Seeing as colored scrollbars aren't in the standards, I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case.

I dislike colored scrollbars myself.

Well I have no particualr like/dislike towards them but in this case it would go extremely well with the design...yet I'd like to keep the site 100% XHTML compliant...

I am a little surprised that the language the page is written in has a bearing on how the CSS is interpreted, but browsers do weird things with those doctypes. Do keep in mind that if you want your *CSS* to be compliant also, scrollbar colors should be left out.

Do you mean CSS instead of XHTML as styles like the scrollbar have no bearing on XHTML (as far as I'm aware) but those browser-specific non-standard styles will get flagged as being incorrect when test your CSS over at W3C. You can safely ignore those error warnings.

And the ability to remove your scrollbars with CSS doesn't work either when using the XHTML DOCTYPEs. A drag....

Pugzly: Ah that will explain problems we've been having with the scrollbars in the GN redesign. IE5.5 shows them fine but IE6 doesn't. Stinker.

Yeah, that pissed me off as well when I was working on a site for a client. I couldn't figure out WHY the darn things wouldn't go away, when I COPIED & PASTED known working code......

Is it possible to tell Mozilla to display scrollbars on every page, even when they're not needed? I have a site where the content is centered horizontally, and there are some pretty short pages so that everything slips some pixels to the right when there aren't any scrollbars...

It's no big problem of course, but would still be handy to know how to control Mozilla's scrollbars if there is a way of doing so.
