Is this online anywhere cos I'm not keen on downloading a zip file from a stranger.

I'm afraid its not online, and i understand your reasons for not wanting to download. If there's another way i can show you please advise. But thanks for enquiring anyway.

The file is good by the way.

Yes, it is fine. If you hadn't come back and shown you were genuine I wouldn't have touched it! The problem you have is that the scrollbar is appearing on the screen when the content is longer than the browser window. You can force the scrollbar to always be there if you change your body CSS styles;

body {
font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif;
background: #CCC;
margin: 0;
Padding: 0;
overflow-y: scroll;

overflow-y:scroll forces the scrollbar. I have seen other people say set a height on the body styles to 101% but I can never quite get that to work but may be worth a try.

Hope that helps & welcome to the forum btw :)

Thanks for your time & help, never even thought of the scroll bar. I thought i was going mad not been able to see what was wrong in the code.

Thanks for the welcome to the site.
