Theme sidebar + blogroll overflow producing weird display ... (6 posts)

    Hey all,

    So I'm trying to integrate a new theme into my weblog @ sevenstripes.com. The great theme is MistyLook ( http://wpthemes.info/misty-look/ ) at my test blog ( http://area51.sevenstripes.com ).

    Now, the problem is with the blogroll's on the bottom right of my SideBar. Here's my sidebar code for the individual blogroll's:
    <li class="sidebox">
    <h2>United Conservosphere:</h2>

    <a href="http://sevenstripes.com/blog/2006/08/05/united-conservosphere/"><img src="http://sevenstripes.com/images/uc3.jpg" border="0" alt="Join the United Conservosphere"></img></a>

    <div class="scroll"><script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="http://rpc.blogrolling.com/display.php?r=ebf54728a310f4cbbc3d900c60e84099"></script>


    And here's the code for my modified Style.CSS:
    .scroll {height: 200px; width: 190px; overflow: auto;}

    Can anyone identify the visual problem I'm seeing in Firefox? I don't seem to see it in Internet Explorer, but I obviously want the visuals to look good in all browsers.

    If anyone notices anything, please help out and a big thank you for looking!

    I've tried playing around with the dimensions of the box, shrinking its width and height, but it didnt seem to have any affect.

    So i decided to peek at the code on my current blog that currently works:
    <div style="overflow : auto 2px #ff0000; background : #ECECEC; color : #000000; padding : 3px; width : 190px; height : 200px; overflow : auto; ">
    <script language="javascript" src="blog url here" type="text/javascript">

    When I added overflow : auto 2px the result was close to what I desired... if you look now at http://area51.sevenstripes.com you'll see what I mean.

    The effect was that the top blogroll overflowed on top of the following ones, and the scroll box disappeared completely.

    Any ideas anyone?

    PS -- everything works in IE, but not Mozilla/Firefox or Opera.

    Sorry to keep bumping this but I'm yielding the same result over and over and was hoping to release my blog's new look in a few days.

    OK -- partially got this fixed.

    I'm proud to report back that I fixed the validation errors and we're not validated. The problem was that a pair of tags wree surrounding the <div> tags in question and the result was the error aforementioned.

    But I'm still getting the sloppy weird result on the website.

    The blogrolls arent contained in a box as desired, but rather, overflow all over hte place... any ideas ? Please help!
