Have you tried out the CSS property overflow in the style-attribute of yor DIV-tag? There you can set visible, scroll, hidden and auto.
visible enlarges the DIV, scroll inserts scrollbars, hidden cuts the rest off and auto usually inserts scrollbars if the comtent is to large, otherwise it shows the content normal.

I can't tell you anything about it's browser-compatibiliy but I assume it's CSS-standard.

Greetings
Bard
