There is but cross-browser compatability is horrid. Mozilla handles it
okay, some properly ignore it if they don't know how to handle it, but
the various version of IE are pretty buggy with it.

Using the various (non-JS) tricks to hide CSS from the various browsers
can make it workable. The overall effect isn't the greatest though.

If anyone wants to see a sample of such scrolling I'll provide one soon
as I can resolve the site again ;).
