Need help: Page scrollbars disappear unless IFRAMES used

I'm trying to embed the grid inside of an html page. Not a problem.
However, when I view the page, the browser scrollbars are missing (and the data does page does span more than 1 screen).

If I embed the grid into the page via an IFrame, the page does retain it's scrollbars.

Thing is, I can't use IFrames at work.

Is there a way I can implement the GRID on the page without losing the browser scrollbars?

Thanks ... Carl

Please show your code, you should not be losing browser scrollbars.

The overall page/code is long. Listed two links to demo. Thanks for responding.

The code in the second link is just a compilation of BOTH of the html pages that make up the first link.
Just to note, it does use an XML data source (you will see in the second link if you view the source).
Any help would be great. It has been driving me crazy. I've been trying to build it as a way to justify the purchase of ActiveWidgets for use on our corporate web site (thus, the "branding" of the page.
Also, note, in the first link, the grid loses the column widths as defined in the CSS - I've been struggling with that too - but the widths are correct in the second link.

Link 1: Uses an IFrame and is scrollable.(built on two html files)

Link 2: Compilation of the above 2 pages - no scrollbars.

Thanks, you problem is here

body, html {margin:2px; padding: 0px; overflow: hidden;}

You are hidding the overflow for the body tag.

Try removing the "overflow: hidden;"

Should solve the problem.
