    background-color:#00000;
    width:125px;
    height:150px;
    overflow: scroll
    }
    </style>

    Overflow: scroll works in different ways in various browsers. See
    http://www.quirksmode.org/css/overflow.html
    and
    http://www.x-smiles.org/demo/testsui...lowscroll.html
    However, the way you have it the scroll will apply to all divs which is probably why you are seeing it in another place.
    Give the code to a single div class:
    in stylesheet or head:
    <style>
    div
    .testscroll
    { background-color:#00000;
    width:500px;
    height:150px;
    overflow: scroll
    }
    </style>

    in the body
    <div class="testscroll">Test - add a lot of text here to test the scroll</div>
