can't force the scrollbar in a frame with mozilla

Hi everyone, I'm new here...

I have a frameset header/contents. It's necessary to force the header's
scrollbar to be visible to preserve the alignment between the two frames
(see www.liceomichelangelo.it for details).

What can I do instead of
<frame src="header.html scrolling="Yes">
that doesn't seem to work with netscape/mozilla?

thanks in advance for any help

The problem is css, so a javascript solution should not be necessary. Try
{overflow:scroll;}
or ask in comp.infosystems.www.authoring.stylesheets

I don't think so.

Bug 44306: scrolling = yes not implemented: forced scrollbars don't show
up [behaves like scrolling="auto"][frames]
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=44306
keyword: html4

and it has several duplicate bugs (Bug 48991, 66335, 89130, etc.).

please try to have a look again, I used

overflow: moz-scrollbars-vertical;

and now there is an extra space between the two frames... anything in mind?

it's strange that this bug has been propagated to all versions up to the
current one...

thank you DU
