    CSS and MS scrollbar changes

    Hi All.
    I recently stumbled over or tripped over scrollbar attributes while playing with filters and MSDN help files for said filters and CSS. The filters are working fine. Here comes the buttttttt,,,,,, I have been trying N ways to make the scrollbar do what the MSDN examples do. I do not want to use the textarea as a whole set of pages (of course it worked! and is useless for displaying whole pages). I want the scrollbar color changes to apply when the user displays the page(s). I have tried the various code snippets on MSDN and so far, none of them work. I have tried the script/onload, the body {}, the dotClass, the .... usque ad nauseum. Here is the Please. Will someone (please) help me find my error(s). I have tried block-inline and other element properties. I looked at the overflow property and am not sure I did it correctly. Any and all ideas and tips gladly accepted. (from JB - Doctor my eyes have seen the ....will I never be the same).
    TIA,
    JL

    By the way, Firefox doesn't support coloring the scrollbars from a web page -- it will ignore those style properties, as well as IE's filters. So hopefully those are not essential to your application.

    Re: CSS and MS scrollbar changes

    BTW, tanx for the replies. Here is the latest css file. When I loaded the site today, the default page shows the scrollbar color! Go figure, or as Asimov said, "That's funny". Funny, cuz the other pages still show the MS grey, and that's really funny ;^( .. BTW, see the filter stuff, it is working great, sooooooo???

    body {
    display: inline-block;
    color: #336633;
    background-color: #FCFFFC;
    scrollbar-base-color: #8FBC8F;
    }
    .tbl-bot-brdr {
    border-bottom-width: 10px;
    border-bottom-style: solid;
    border-bottom-color: #336633;
    }
    .indent {
    text-indent: 2em;
    }
    .textshadow {
    filter: Shadow(Color=#999999, Direction=45, Strength=5);
    display: inline-block;
    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    }
    .textgradient{
    display: inline-block;
    filter: progidXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(enabled='true', startColorstr=#80336633, endColorstr=#55A0CFA0);
    }
    .skrolbar {
    scrollbar-3dlight-color:;
    scrollbar-arrow-color:;
    scrollbar-base-color: #8FBC8F;
    scrollbar-darkshadow-color:;
    scrollbar-face-color:;
    scrollbar-highlight-color:;
    scrollbar-shadow-color:
    }

    Obviously, the last is all of the args and I keep plugging in one value-pair at a time to try to get an effect, sigh. I have a vague memory (the pain, stop the pain) of some of the other css attributes I have tried, I can answer yea, nea, to specific questions (I hope).
    jscher2000, I know. All the good browsers do not, but I am doing Big Army sites and, welllllllll, uhhhh, ya know...grin (blushing)

    Re: CSS and MS scrollbar changes

    Found it or Eureka or that's funny or hmmmmmmm or ...
    I removed the newer xhtml header stuff -----> <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    ----->
    and just used the old html tag. That did it. Apparently, MS does not keep up with it's own browser compatibility issues. So, I either use xhtml and no nice touches or ?? Hmmm, why do the MS CSS filters work with xhtml but not the scrollbar attributes? Children of the lesser gods? Adopted? Bored so we will return control of the scrollbar attributes, not to the client (windoze system display ), but to the developers? Anyhow, thank you all for replying.
