Is there a way to change the way we view this site so that the scroll bars show up better? I'm sorry if this is answered somewhere else, I didn't know what to search for.

short answer NO.

long answer: maybe.

He could make it so that that would be a possibilty but that would mean that he would have to make it so that all the scripts that he has to make sure that it would work on the new theme

short answer: yes
longer answer: don't use IE. Mozilla has the ability to change css for a page, but it doesn't display the scroll bar anyways.

Nope! you can actually switch the side the scroll bar is on, as well as any formatting with css. I'm not sure the exact property but the value is RTL or LTR (right to left, left to right). I did it for a scrollable div once...

You will find on many websites in different languages that the scroll bar is on the left side, as compared to the right side. The reason being I think is because not all languages read left to right like English. Some read from right to left which would make it more sense to put the scrollbar on the left side (since they are opposite).

but I don't see how the scrollbar is hard to see...maybe it's her
monitor's settings and it blends in too much.

tools/internet options/accessability button/format documents using my stylesheet :D
The downfall is scrollbar colors set in pages will override this. Pages with no color set will take on your colors though.

See I can check a box to override colors with my own stylesheet but it screws up the rest of the colors as well, mozilla on the other hand doesn't support scrollbar colors in the first place....am i wrong?

What's happening is that the gray scroll box is almost exactly the same color as the (I don't know the correct term) lighter gray scroller... Basically I can only differentiate the colors of the arrows at the top, bottom, and sides. Everything else is the same color.

In Mozilla it has an entirely different color scheme, and looks to match the "XP" look of my computer settings. The IE scrollbars match the color scheme of the site itself. (But I have had nothing but problems with Mozilla, so that's why I don't want to use it.)

I tried that. But neither the contrast or brightness change anything with the scroll bars. AND it affects both my laptop and my desktop.

there's about 10px of black between any table and the scrollbar, which is #363636 (over 3 shades lighter).

I believe you, it's just that there's a lot of difference between
#000000 and #363636.

Switch your monitor settings to True Color (24 bit) vs. High color (16 bit)
