    Before we begin lets just get the code to startout with. The CSS below adds a background color, a div with the class box1, and gives that div a width, and height of 100px as well as a light gray color for it's background. As for the HTML it just marks everything up (hense the HyperText Markup Language)

    Beginning The CSS:
    body {
    div.box1 {
    The HTML:
    <title>CSS3 Resize Property</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
    	<div class="box1">
    	<p>Tortor dis et a ut facilisis, nascetur pulvinar urna, penatibus aliquet quis. Enim, lorem turpis nisi. Dictumst sed porta etiam? Est etiam urna augue, elit ac odio! Augue, auctor porttitor tempor sit adipiscing? Integer arcu mid. Lundium cursus a integer, urna in? A sed cras et! Mid mauris? Platea lectus et eu lacus turpis, tincidunt et scelerisque sagittis aliquam nisi! Aenean rhoncus pid, tincidunt ac amet vel cursus et pellentesque! Natoque ultrices lundium cras elit, sit dignissim! Lacus, porttitor, et pulvinar a. Phasellus nascetur lundium et odio turpis placerat ridiculus rhoncus. Augue? Nisi et tempor! Aenean urna ultrices. Pulvinar parturient urna ridiculus tempor ut, sagittis augue mauris scelerisque, lectus placerat et a? Urna mid, risus hac dapibus elit! Sed odio.</p>

    All we need to do is add an overflow property into out css, and the overflow property you can choose auto, or hidden. Hidden will state for it to just be cut off (like in the download) and auto will give it a scrollbar. (overflow:auto;)

    After you add the overflow property you'll need to add the resize property in your css, and resize has the options horizontal, vertical, and both. Which are all pretty much self explanatory.

    A textarea has resize by default, and if you add resize:none; into textarea via css it'll then remove the option for it to be resized.

    Our New CSS:
    body {
    div.box1 {
    Easy, and Simple!
