scroll bar colors

    Is it possible to change the color of scroll bars that is W3C compliant?

    as far as I know only IE:

    the code does not validate ever.

    but it can be done, but some browsers just ignore it……

    I done it on an old site of mine

    at the end of the day I wouldnt bother – it always, ALWAYS looks crap. If you want to do it use a JavaScript style scroller – then atleast you can fully style it.

    example:

    thanks for the input, i had wanted to make the scrollbars the same color as my background, but I think I will just forget about it.
    Thanks!

    it is a bad idea.

    let me explain…..

    some people have really bad eyesight and need to have different themes / gui to show the scroll bar better for them, if you play about with that you may be confusing your bad eyesight audience….

    keep it simple
