Well, I got the creative across my desk today for a new website that I need to put up. However, I am stumped to how to do this layout without resorting to <frames> *blech*

If I only had to target IE, I'd just use a <div> with over-flow set to auto, as that seems to do the trick nicely. However, it completly farts in NS.

I thought about using iframes / layers, but cant seem to get the desired result in netscape and it looks all wonked out.

^^ the site I am playing with right now.

How do I get a scrolling layer in netscape? (needs to be backwards compatible to NS6), I can get them working fine a number of differnt ways with IE, but cant seem to get it meshing with NS.

I was able to use a div like this in Netscape for a previous site i did. Maybe you can look at the source to see how I got it to work.

The sroll bars dont appear in NS, it just extends the iframe down the lenght of the content. I need there to be a scrollbar, as if the content is pushed down, it breaks the rest of the layout.

I must have been very Pro IE back in the day. Cause you are absolutely right about it not working in NS 6. Thanks for pointing that out to me. I'll have to watch how I use that from now on.

If i figure a work around for this i'll be right back to tell you about it.

Here you go. You can do it with CSS. Just try this out. http://www.forum4designers.com/message86461.html

I updated that previous page I showed you and it uses the new code to do it.

http://cutter.ship.edu/~icn/ffm/www/archives/issue4/current.html

.outerscrollable {
height: 207px;
width: 153px;
overflow: auto;
}
.scrollable {
width: 140px;
}

** THis removes the horizontal scoll bar

still not doing the trick ... so, I've just opt'd for a plain old frameset.

However, even /this/ is giving me grief, *grumbles*

it renders fine under IE and Mozz, but still not working under NS6.0, - almost, but not quote.

When all else fails. Just add a link http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/ somewhere on the page. j/k ...

sorry that fix didn't help you out. I don't have NS6 on my computer so I couldn't test the results. I was just assuming if I gave enough responses something might work. Sorry for wasting your time.

works in NS 6.2, client is happy with that .. soo, 6.2 it is.

I Still hate netscape :P

(layout isnt done, still needs tweaks, but its a start, and also need to optimize the graphics a bit more)
