Hi I am currently taking an XHTML class and we are now dealing w/ JavaScript and for some reason I am having the worst time trying to set this assignment to where the scrollbar color is what I set it to. I am using internet explorer 7; for some reason the professor was worried that was the problem but im not sure. Here is what I have.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<title>Apply 9-1</title>
<!--Hide from old browsers
function scrollColor() }

.italic {
font-style: italic;

function laodBooths(myForms) {
var menuSelect=myForm.Menu.selectedIndex
var menuUrl=myForm.Menu.options[menuSelect].value+".htm"

California Arts Film Festival is the home

in 1934. The festival was started as
a Depression-era festival to present new films created by

independent movie producers and directors hoping to be noticed by

the big Hollywood studios.</b></p>
<p style="font-size:14px; color:maroon"><b>With the growth

of independent filmmakers over the years, the festival attracts

more than 100 original films, motion picture musical scores, and

screenplays. Many of today's leading actors and directors were

discovered through their films being shown at this annual event.

<p style="font-size:14px; color:maroon"><b>The festival

workshops' discussion sessions are a goldmine of information,

ideas, tips, and general brainstorming about what makes great

films. New partnerships and next year's films often find their

start over a cup coffee or glass of wine while participants are

discussing one of the films presented that day. To be where the

excitement is and to be part of filmmaking's future, you must be at

the Californial Arts Film Festival 2008. </b></p>

Next time, post to the javascript forum (not the Java forum, there is a difference), please. I have already asked the admins to move this thread.

and don't send PMs asking for help to people who say they don't want them.

The scrollbar does not belong to you (as a web programmer).

It belongs to the owner of the computer that is doing the browsing.

The only standard way to change its color is in the Display menu in Control Panel. This must be done on the user's computer, not in the script.

Internet Explorer has a nonstandard way (what you were doing) to change the scrollbar color, but it doesn't work in other browsers.
