Using web viewer to display a scrollable text field that the user cannot edit

I am trying to display on a layout a text field of variable length which I want the user to scroll through but not edit or modify.

 

The regular textfield if disabled in Browse mode to prevent user entering the field disables the scroll bar too.

So tried creating a Webviewer field with the calculation

Having set the overflow CSS property of the pre tag to scroll the expected appearance was a scrollable text display. (Thats how pre tags with css property overflow set to scroll is rendered in a regular browser). But the text displayed in Filemaker web viewer does not scroll.

 

Any suggestions how to fix this?
