This question already has an answer here:

As you can see on the picture below, my text is displayed within a 'relatively small' DIV. Currently users have the possibility to scroll down within the DIV to read the full text but I don't really like that solution and I'm looking for something more visually appealing. What would you advise in this case? Something like hide/show DIVs when users click on "text part 2", "text part 3, etc? Many thanks enter image description here

Hi Greg, welcome to UX.se! Are you talking about pagination? If yes, have you looked at any of the pagination questions. They answer your question in detail, from what I can see. ux.stackexchange.com/questions/36394/… –  rk. May 5 '13 at 19:02

When dealing with text, you have one of two options: a single (possibly long) page, or many pages.

Scrolling is basically a single very long page where you only see a window on it at a time.

Pagination (which can include scrolling if each page is long) is the same as having many pages.
