I got the smiley box to scroll. Unfortunately, there are some limitations:

There is one big long-ass THIS THREAD IS USELESS WITHOUT PICS smiley image that gets cut off due to the scroll bar appearing. It's a limitation of CSS, I'm not sure I can do anything about that. You can see the left hand side of the image for selecting, however.

I cannot exactly match the height of the smiley box to the height of the message text area. One is measured in pixels, the other in text lines; as far as I can tell, an exact match isn't possible for that reason. I set the smiley box to be 280 pixels high, which looks pretty close on my browser. But, different browsers have different HTML rendering engines, so YMMV.

Full disclosure: I am not a user interface expert. If anyone with CSS knowledge knows how to improve the site, please do chime in :D

What do you all think of the font stuff I'm doing for the forum names on the main page? I've added a border and a drop shadow, but it may be too busy.

THe shadowing on "Jacurutu" on the right looks awesome.

Shadowing on the forum topics is a bit dark. Makes it difficult to see the brown letters, whereas the white Jacurutu stands out because of it.

Huh, they render as the same colors in my browser. Can you post a screencap of both?
