I have been working for about a week on my first website using CSS. I'm sure it's not exactly right but I think it is a good first effort.

I have two main problems.

1. No matter what I do with the overflow option, I have no scroll bar on the pages of the site that exceed the viewable area. I need to have a scroll bar on the body of the page so people can scroll down.

2. In internet explorer the site is a mess. I think this is because the page is fixed. I have no idea how to fix this problem.

The site isn't quite finished yet so please ignore the lengths of the columns.

Can anyone help? I don't know what to provide you for you to help.

Thanks so much for anyone who can help this CSS newbie. :frustration:

Lana

Not sure if this will fix your problem, but you might want to look at the bolded items.
