Jumping in a little late here so apols if i've got the wrong end of
the stick....

You should remove the all the <br> and to stop any strange jumping
behaviour on mouseover
why not add a few &nbsp; to your <p id="desc"/>

so when you mouseover the height is the same.... the content just
changes. You could add in as many &nbsp; to take up the same width of
the text - this way it will maintain height with any text-size.

Other options would be to use css and give it a min-height - IE can use height.

#desc {

<!--[if IE 6]>
#desc {

Personally I wouldnt try and fix the issue of browsers showing
scrollbars or not - let the browser do its job of showing a scrollbar
when its required.
Don't confuse the user by having a scrollbar when there is no content to read.
