Scrolling DIVs with inline links -- compatibility issues

P: n/a
Hi all,

I've been working on a site that involves content in multiple
scrolling DIVs on a page which is loaded inside multiple framesets.
the layout is cramped as all hell but I'm not going to argue that with
the client -- they def. want it to be structured this way.

One DIV usually contains two "comparable" items between which the user
can switch. I solved this by putting inline links at the top of the
DIVs that link to an <A name="... further down in the DIV.

I have tested this and it works like a charm in Win/IE, Mozilla, and
NN7.1, as well as Mac/Mozilla and Safari. It does NOT, however, work
in Mac/IE and Win/Opera -- in these browsers, it tries to scroll the
entire page down in search of the inline link, instead of just the

Here's a dummy:

Quick question, is there any quick and easy way to make this
If not, it's not so very tragic, since I'll have to offer a non-DIV
alternative for NN4.7 compatibility anyway, so I could just redirect
Mac/IE and Opera users to that one too. I'm just curious and wanting
to make it work ;-)
