How do you ... validate scrollbar colorizing?
Scrollbar coloring is viewable in the latest IE browsers. It may or may not be adopted by other browsers someday. Considering it is a "proprietary" (made by IE and not W3C) type of coding, it will normally not validate as correct coding. Thus a bit of javascript can be used to have the best of both worlds.

<script type="text/javascript">
window.onload = function()
var htmlStyle = document.getElementsByTagName('html')[0].style;
var bodyStyle =;
bodyStyle.scrollbarFaceColor = htmlStyle.scrollbarFaceColor = '#000000';
bodyStyle.scrollbarArrowColor = htmlStyle.scrollbarArrowColor = '#000000';
bodyStyle.scrollbarTrackColor = htmlStyle.scrollbarTrackColor = '#000000';
bodyStyle.scrollbarShadowColor = htmlStyle.scrollbarShadowColor = '#000000';
bodyStyle.scrollbarHighlightColor = htmlStyle.scrollbarHighlightColor = '#000000';
bodyStyle.scrollbar3dlightColor = htmlStyle.scrollbar3dlightColor = '#000000';
bodyStyle.scrollbarDarkshadowColor = htmlStyle.scrollbarDarkshadowColor = '#000000';

The hex color codes should be replaced by your desired colors.

The javascript essentially "hides" the colorizing from the validator, but still allows the colorizing of the scrollbar in IE.
