I'm new here!
My site, http://www.craigatkinson.co.uk.
On mac it's fine. On PC - IE7 it's far from it. I have a few problems.

1. The blog, http://www.craigatkinson.co.uk/links/news.html on IE there are 3 scroll bars on the righ and a hrizontal on the bottom. I need to get rid of these and just have the one vertical on the right.

I used to have the exact same site using frames and it worked fine. I just can't get it to happen with divs / css!

2. On every other page with a horizontal scroll eg http://www.craigatkinson.co.uk/links/ar ... index.html there are two vertical bars on the right [still IE on PC}. I'd like just the one to show.

Please help before I crumble and go back to frames!!

With all due respect, it's not IE.

You couldn't have had the exact same thing using frames. <div>s and <framesets>s aren't analogous. You're comparing apples and oranges.

Your <iframe> is producing a scrollbar because it's a frame and the <div> that contains it is producing a scrollbar as well because it's been given a CSS definition of "overflow:auto;".

There are 65 markup errors according to W3C. I didn't bother validating the CSS.

I think you need to start over with a clean slate, personally.

Try placing style="overflow:auto;" inside your div For eg: your div should be similar to <div id="side_menu" style="overflow:auto;"> and <div id="news" style="overflow:auto;">
