    You can accomplish a lot of that through a stylesheet. I'm not sure if any of that has anything to do with php itself.

    BODY{
    scrollbar-3d-light-color: #FDC282;
    scrollbar-arrow-color: #EAEAEA;
    scrollbar-base-color: #000000;
    scrollbar-dark-shadow-color: #FDC282;
    scrollbar-face-color: #FD9C36;
    scrollbar-highlight-color: #E8D0B5;
    scrollbar-shadow-color: #FDC282;
    }

    This is a snippet from the stylesheet from isonews.com, it shows how you can change the style of the scroll bar.

    btw, this is IE5.5+ specific. It may work with mozilla, idk. Netscape users will notice no difference. A tutorial on the subject is here :

    It is a good one, and interactive!
