Well, if you're prepared to use a div and css, you can cut
out the js reliance altogether, and have it backwards
compatible, in that older browsers will simply display it
all going down like they normally would, instead of
scrolling, meaning everyones happy and can get to the

Just create a <div> and then give it a height and width and
a value of overflow: scroll; the only thing you don't get
is fancy scrollbars, but IMHO this method is a lot better
and more accessible.
