Hi! I have a problem I'm trying to work out. I have an unordered list that is way too long for the page. Of course, the browser has a vertical scroll, but I wanted to put in a scroll myself so that the list only appears between my left and right columns, which are 900px high. I have a scroll bar working, and my issue is this: the text has no padding on the right by the scroll bar - it goes right up to the scroll bar. How do I add the padding? Here is my current css code:

Code: [ Select ]
#scroll    {width: 100%;
         height: 590px;
         overflow: auto;}
  1. #scroll    {width: 100%;
  2.          height: 590px;
  3.          overflow: auto;}

I tried to add the following into the above section:

Code: [ Select ]
padding-right: 15px;

This pushes the whole list section (and its scroll bar) down below my left and right columns, defeating the whole purpose. Can anyone help me make this work?

Try adding the "padding" declaration to your unordered list.
