I've started seeing these scrollable table things being used recently. Is
this a MS IE invention and does anyone have any thoughts on their
accessibility and usage? You seem to be able to tab into them in order to
scroll them with keys which kind of works for me. Only problem with them
being that I don't think the contents would be printed but that's not
necessarily an accessibility issue. Maybe if they were made to small it
might be difficult to use them with large font sizes as you would only see a
very small section but don't think this would affect screen readers?

Here's an example I've come across:
