div overflow doesn't scroll in Safari

Hello, i'm trying to make a scrollable area in my website. The area
(a
DIV) is 500 x 200 pixels and shows a table which is much larger
(>2000
pixels in width).
Everything works fine in IE, but on a mac, using Safari, a problem
rises: There is no scrollbar, not horizontal, not vertical.. And only
the last part of my table is visible..

What should i do? Has someone an example which works in Safari and
scrolls aswell? I don't want to use framesets...
my code:
[[[[[[[[[[css file:
div.scroll{
height: 200px;
width: 500px;
overflow: auto;

}
[[[[[[[html part:
<div class="scroll">
<table...>
......
</table>
</div>

You should post a url on this one for sure so all can be seen.

I pity your users. That's a mighty cumbersome way to view such data. :(

So what about Firefox or other browsers?

Redesign it so as to be more usable for more people?
my code:
Don't post code, post a URL. Besides, your little snippet doesn't tell
the whole story.
