CSS Overflow (Auto) and SEO
Good or bad?

I'm struggling with something.

I'm designing a new site from the ground up and for the first time I really want to do everything right in terms of SEO. I'm nofollowing outbound sitewide links, have different title tags for every page, proper meta, good content rich pages.

My Problem
On the homepage I want to have a news section I can update often. The BEST solution for me for this to keep the layout from getting too long and allowing me to get at least 3 news posts on the page at the same time is using the CSS overflow:auto feature. It basically allows you to create a div with scrollbars giving you that "frames" effect look while actually still having all the content there on that same page for the SEs to index.

Anyone have any definitive guidance on this?

I don't particularly like these, as different browsers render them differently, but that is more a matter of personal taste than anything else.
