is it possible to create a div or something like it that literally holds its content with no overflow, somehwat like an iFrame? i have an absolutely positioned div set to auto scroll, which contains several pages of content. while it looks nice and seems to work, the content flowing down the page is actually just hidden. if i were to, for instance, try to reference a part of the text with an anchor, it would snap to somewhere several pages down in the document, rather than somwhere several pages down in the div.
i hope someone can shed some light on truly contained boxes. i'd hate to resort to using an iFrame.
1. the link to expand the list is inside the div 2.absolute 3. the scrolling div is supposed to be the only scrolling part of the page. however, because the div doesn't completely contain the text, invisible content going down puts a scrollbar on the side of the page.

by checking the page in mozilla, i discovered that the page i'm working on seems to be written as well as should be, and the bug is actually in ie 5.2:mac. if only mac internet explorer is affected i may put finding a fix on the backburner for a few days if someone could do me a big favor and check the sample in windows internet explorer, please contact me for a link
