Issue - how should a box with fixed height and overflow:scroll behave when it breaks across two pages? Should the content be clipped? Should there be any indication that content HAS BEEN clipped? Should the user have an option to print separately?

See attached file. You might need to play around with margins

IE7/8 - try to avoid breaking in the middle. Scrollbars and shown and content is clipped.
Firefox - try to avoid breaking in the middle. No scrollbars and content is clipped
Opera - clip the box. Scrollbars and content is clipped.
