Hi
scenario:
i am using two divs, outer <div> overflow:hidden is used for scrolling. and the inner <div> includes a table to display.

<div style="overflow:hidden">
<div><table>
<tr><td></td></tr>
<tr><td></td></tr>
</table>
</div>
</div>
i dont want inner <div> style should be overflow:hidden. but it is setting the inner <div> style overflow as hidden by default.

Require: how to avoid inner div not to be overflow hidden. Inner <div> should not use the property hidden.
Please advice.

Thanks
diana

Most likely you need to set the oveflow to visible on the inner Div

Look at this for all the properties with overflow: http://www.quirksmode.org/css/overflow.html
