Let me explain more about my proposal. What i meant when i said , and i 
quote: "Internet Explorer uses it, so why not make it legal", was that 
Microsoft is pushing IE So much on the poor Windows Users ( Including Myself 
), they get to see one of the greatest uses of Cascading Style Sheets 
(Colored Scrollbar!). The purpose of making it legal is so the few (but 
growing) Mac users who only have Netscape (And whe all love Netscape!) dont 
get to see it.
Also, The colored scrollbar could make more people use CSS (And isn't that 
what whe all want?). I have seen alot of sites that the only bit of CSS they 
use is the colored scrollbar. Ok i know that The Masters Of the W3C dont 
enjoy IE's Little twists to their work, but you got to understand that the 
browser most used 'roun the world is IE. I know that what IE uses needs 
Perfection, at least make a version legal. You could seperate the 
Horizontal, Vertical and the textarea Bars. I know that most people against 
the colored scrollbar are still amazed at italic text and the comment tags 
(/* WOW */), but you got to understand that was amazing to the first 
generation of Web users isn't as great to the second generation who have 
grown up with tables, frames, CSS, and JavaScript.
What about the third generation who are going to grow up with XML and other 
great stuff that is being worked up by the W3C.
