In the same spirit of "couldn't help it", I have to say that limiting the
amount of content is not enough to hide the scrollbars.

IE likes to *display* the scrollbars even if they are not needed.

There are a range of solutions depending on the browser.  Most versions of
NS allow for setting the document.height value to something smaller than the
window height.  This will override the size of the document and remove the

Using JS to edit the body.style.scroll (can't remember exact syntax at the
moment) will allow you to dynamically hide the bars.

I have a method sitting somewhere at home that combines then into a single
function, if anyone is interested, just give me a yell / prode.
