Q: Div A inside Div B is larger than Div B

Discussion in 'Javascript' started by Dwayne Madsen, Jun 1, 2005.

  1. Hi all,

    I'm having no luck finding the CSS way to to
    the following:

    I have a very large Div A, and I want it to
    appear "inside" Div B, to the effect that Div A's
    side is not limited by that of Div B, but its
    text also does not extend beyond the limits of
    Div B.

    Imagine a scrollable table. That's the effect
    I want, but without the scrollbars.

    Can anyone tell me how this is done?

    Thanks very much.
