    Resolved [RESOLVED] HTML scroll problem with just divs

    I created a website using notepad.

    i have two divs. There is NO plain text.

    one div shows an image. the other one shows text.

    the text div is about 2000pixels below the top div. now when page loads you see top div but cant see bottom div. no scrollbar are present and even arrow keys or mouse middle button cant be used to scroll down to see the second div.

    how do you fix this

    are you using absolute positioning? what does the HTML look like? CSS? We're not mind readers, so we don't know what code you used.

    I recommend against using position:fixed or position:absolute, unless you're sure that's what you want. It sounds to me as though you could simply use a margin between the two elements.

    i need divs to be able to be placed freely anywhere on the browser window exactly in same position as in the designer. i give the div top and left values in the style parameter.
