I am having some realy big problems here. My task I actually a quite
simple one. I am trying to create a page-layout using divs which should
look like this page, but uses divs instead if iframes

   <table style="width:100%;height:100%;" border="1">
    <tr style="height:100px;">
     <td colspan="2">Title</td>
     <td style="width:100px">Left</td>
      <iframe width="100%" height="100%" src="content.html"/>
    <tr style="height:100px;">
     <td colspan="2">Bottom</td>

I managed to get quite far with my div-layout, but everytime my content
div (with overflow set to auto) is to display a table or just an element
which is greater than the place usually reserved for the div, the IE
simply blows up the parent div instead of showing scrolbars. This totaly
ruines my layout. How can I prevent this from happening?

Thanks in advance.
