Does this tag create a box with scroll-bars like an iframe in the middle of the webpage? Can someone post some code with this tag working correct?

<div style="overflow:auto">

If it does what I said above I'd like to use it but when I put that tag around my HTML it doesn't do anything or change the appearance in any way.

just save bellow code with html extention and see the result.

<body >
<script language="javascript">
//On scrolling of DIV tag.
function OnDivScroll()
	var lstCollegeNames = document.getElementById("lstCollegeNames");

	//The following archives two things while scrolling
	//a) On horizontal scrolling: To avoid vertical scroll bar in select box when the size of 
	// the selectbox is 8 and the count of items in selectbox is greater than 8.
	//b) On vertical scrolling: To view all the items in selectbox
	//Check if items in selectbox is greater than 8, if so then making the size of the selectbox to count of
	//items in selectbox,so that vertival scrollbar won't appear in selectbox
	if (lstCollegeNames.options.length > 8)

	//On focus of Selectbox
	function OnSelectFocus()
		//On focus of Selectbox, making scroll position of DIV to very left i.e 0 if it is not. The reason behind
		//is, in this scenario we are fixing the size of Selectbox to 8 and if the size of items in Selecbox is greater than 8 
		//and to implement downarrow key and uparrow key functionality, the vertical scrollbar in selectbox will
		//be visible if the horizontal scrollbar of DIV is exremely right.
		if (document.getElementById("divCollegeNames").scrollLeft != 0)
			document.getElementById("divCollegeNames").scrollLeft = 0;

		var lstCollegeNames = document.getElementById('lstCollegeNames');
		//Checks if count of items in Selectbox is greater than 8, if yes then making the size of the selectbox to 8.
		//So that on pressing of downarrow key or uparrowkey, the selected item should also scroll up or down as expected.
		if( lstCollegeNames.options.length > 8)

<div id="divCollegeNames" style="OVERFLOW: auto;WIDTH: 304px;HEIGHT: 147px" onscroll="OnDivScroll();">
