Yes, Paging data was looked at too, but even with a massive table, we found our internal users preferred a huge scrollable table over a paging table. Reason being that it was faster/easier for them to browse through data using a scroll wheel/scroll bar than using a combination of scrolling and/or clicking next/previous page buttons.

@Charles, I think I know what he means... I think he is trying to say "scrolling within scrolling". That is, Having the usual browser scroll bar, and then having the additional inner scroll bar for the overflow div.

I would agree with you that this is an ideal solution, but I find it becomes problematic when the table contains thousands of rows. The overflow method seems to work rather sluggishly, also, overflow scrolling does not work at all in iPhone browser :-(

Sorry I can't quite make sense of what you wrote, if I understand you correctly, you are saying to let the browser handle vertical scrolling? As in NOT using css overflow?
