I have a page that has an area that I would like to make scrollable while the rest of the page stays put.

I was told that it was easy to do using "scrolling divs". Well, I googled for this and found an example, but when I run the app nothing even similar to what I exepected (an area with scroll bars) gets displayed. What I see is the exact page as it was before but with a square box in the background.

Here is a snippet of the code:



What is it that I am doing wrong? Is it that the components have static position values?

Thanks.

Remove the asolute positioning from the tables along with their top and left positions and that should get you started.

I avoid abs. positioning at all costs!
