Messages displayed to user.

What do people do when they have to display messages to user and want to put
them in some kind of scrolling window? Do you use a text box or is there
some better way.

TIA - Jeff.

If you are talking web, you can open a new window with the toolbar,
statusbar, etc. turned off and make the window the size you want and have the
user scroll the window to read it.

You could also use the <DIV> element to create a box for your text and set
its scroll property.

A new window is easiest, but the DIV option offers a lot of options that are
not available with a window...at least as far as I know.
