The most versatile solution to the scroll/noscroll problem would be
to give all block elements a SCROLL=yes|no property.

Think of the possibilities. For example, you could give various text
blocks a noscroll property and that text would then remain fixed on
the screen while all other text scrolled underneath. This could be
especially effective when the non-scrolling text had the BLINK
attribute.
