I am having some iframe hassles that are driving me to drink. I know this is a problem which has been discussed here before, but here I go again:
I only want/need vertical scrollbars to appear on my iframes. I have ensured that the width of the content of the iframe (ie: the page being displayed in the iframe) is no wider than the width of the iframe itself.
If I set scrolling="auto", then it displays fine in Firefox and Netscape, but in IE I get horizontal scrolling bars, despite the fact that the content is definitely not too wide for the iframe.
If I set scrolling="yes", then it displays properly in IE and Netscape, but in Firefox I get a "blank" horizontal scroll bar, which looks terrible.
Now, what really bugs me is that I have used iframes before and I've never had this same problem... I've re-examined my code a zillion times and still can't figure out why these particular iframes are having the horizontal scroll bar problem.
My code that DOES work:
<td width="465" height="400" rowspan="2" align="left" valign="top">
<iframe name="frame" src=welcome.htm frameborder=0 scrolling="auto" height=390 width=460></iframe>
My code that DOES NOT work:
<td width="560" height="380" align="left" valign="top">
<iframe name="frame" src=main.htm frameborder=0 scrolling="auto" height=380 width=550></iframe>
I searched on the forums and found this fix:
style="overflow-x: hidden; overflow-y: scroll;"
But I tried it and it didn't work.
