I'm really hoping that the CSS tools for color scroll bars in the new IE
5.5/Win are a Microsoft extension and not something lurking in a W3C draft
I've forgotten:

More specifically:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/samples/author/dhtml/refs/scrollbarColor.
htm

I'm especially worried about their use of behaviors as well, especially
while that rather murky spec hasn't moved to a new draft since oh, 4 August
