BCS Place Web Content In Scroll Box

There are those time when you would like to place web content is a scroll box to better utilize available page space and improve overall esthetics of the web page.

While there are several approaches available I recommend using cascading style sheets over other available options. Cascading style sheets work across most browsers and are centrally located for making wholesale changes to the web site.

Below is a CSS footprint that is used to coral content via a scroll box.

.sbx 
{
	width: 70%;
	height: 500px;
	overflow: scroll;
}

Of course you modify these paramters to better fit the usage you desire.
