Horizontal Scroll Bar

Hi All,

I am using a Mshtml editor with an htc as an replacement to Textarea to provide rich text features. My problem is i am getting an horizontal scroll bar.
My div code in htc file is

div id=editBox align=left color="white" style="height:98px;width=740px; font-family:Arial; padding:2;border:2 inset #dfdfdf ;background-color:white;text-wrap;word-wrap: break-word;overflow-x :"hidden";"
In the place where i call the editor in do this way

TD class="Fld_Vl" colspan="3"

ed:mailEditor id="idBrfDesc" content='Desc' edit='true' onchange="javascript:funChange()" style="height:200; width=750;text-wrap;word-wrap: break-word;"

I dont get a horizontal scroll and it wraps properly, If height exceeds and a vertical scroll bar comes up, horizontal scroll bar comes up automatically. Could any one suggest how to avoid horizontal scroll bar coming up.
Thanks in advance.

overflow-x hidden is IE only at the moment, but should be made part of the standard.

Have you tried:

overflow:hidden OR overflow:visible

I agree. Here's the link:
