To force a scrollbar, you need to use absolute positioning to place a div just below the bottom of the viewing area. So we do this:
Let's not mention semantics, shall we! ;)
limbo, if you are happy that the entire page has a scrollbar, which I think you were saying in your post, why not just try:
This should force the browser to always display a scrollbar... One problem with this is that you will get a scrollbar area (faded) horizontally along the bottom too which may not look very good.
To combat this you could use overflow-y instead but you won't get much cross browser support for this one.
