web design query
Okay, all you savvy web design types I need some assistance...

I'm working on some design ideas for one of my sites and I'd really like to try using a fixed sized table with a scroll bar. Here is an example of what I'm talking about from CSS Zen Garden:

Green Tea

First, any good tutorials out there for this code and second, is it possible to do this with HTML tables instead of CSS? I'm not ready to make the full leap into CSS layouts. :> Any help, links or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

I'm not an expert by any means, but I posted a reply here.

There's a useful basic article here http://www.apptools.com/examples/scroller.php.

The scroll window used in the layout you linked to is an inline frame. Google it and you'll find a ton of resources out there.

If you want to do a pure css, scrolling content window, check out Squidfingers; he has got some seriously cool codes there. Minimal instructions, so it's pretty much download the code and pick apart to understand what makes it tick. ;) It took me about three tries before I finally was able to format his css scroll window code exactly how I wanted, without totally messing something up. ;)

So, which site are you doing this for?

Inline frame... got it! Thanks and for the link too! That is a problem for me, I know what I want design-wise but I rarely know what these darn things are called... yeah that scrollbar thingie! :>

I'm working on the youth section of CCFred. I'm mostly just working through design concepts, figuring out how to work CSS and Dreamweaver. :> Once that is done though, I'm hoping to turn my attention to my costuming site... maybe this summer. I've found I love cleaning up old code! *rubs hands together*
