Disabling horizontal scrolling
...but not vertical

Does anybody have any idea if this is possible, and if so how to do it? I would have thought that there was some sort of JavaScript trick out there, but I can't for the life of me find one.

Cross browser compatability is also required (just to make the task a little trickier).

You could achieve this effect with a 100% frameset, and disabled scrolling in the visible frame.

However, the page design would still be tricky -- there would be differing amounts of screen real estate available for display according to the visitor's screen resolution, whether the browser window was open full or not, etc.

Oops! I mis-read your question -- nevermind. I'll look around and see what I can find. Apologies, my friend.

-- Here's what I discovered. The source is David Flanagan's "JavaScript, The Definitive Guide" from O'Reilly

1. Scrollbar visibility is a package deal in Javascript -- no separate address to vertical and horizontal scrolling

2. Access to the scrollbars object requires a signed script (and subsequent user permission in each case)

3. Even with a signed script, Explorer 4.x does not support access
