How do I create a custom-color scroll bar?
It can be fun to color-coordinate the scroll bar with your Web site! Keep in mind that not all
your Web visitors will see your handiwork. While this effect is supported by Internet Explorer, it
is not supported by all browsers. To configure a scroll bar with colors that you choose, add the
following styles to the body tag: scrollbar-face-color , scrollbar-arrow-color ,
scrollbar-track-color . For example:
body { scrollbar-face-color: #cc66cc;
scrollbar-arrow-color: #006600;
scrollbar-track-color: #cccccc;
Note : Your CSS will not pass W3C validation tests if you use these Internet Explorer only
6.6 CSS Debugging Tips
Using CSS for page layout requires some patience. It takes a while to get used to it. One
of the biggest issues is that even modern browsers implement CSS in slightly different
ways. Testing is crucial. Don't make it your goal that the pages must look exactly the
same on every browser. Expect your pages to look slightly different on various
browsers. Design so they look best on the most commonly used browser (currently
Internet Explorer) and display acceptably well on other browsers. There are Web pages
devoted to CSS bugs and browser support of CSS. The following are a few that you will

style that is not correctly applied.
