Scrollbars not showing up in browser windows?

Hi,
I'm not sure is this is strictly a CSS issue.( or if this is the right place to post this)

I recently bought the super suite, and I'm still getting acquainted with the software. I used the CSS sculptor to get a basic frame for my site.

My problem is that there are no scrollbars showing up in the browser window when needed. When viewing the site on smaller screens, some content is cut off along the bottom. My goal is to have the scrollbars appear only when needed. I haven't touched anything to purposely disable the scrollbars. I've tried changing the overflow properties, with no luck. I'm sure this is something small that I am overlooking, I'm just not able to figure this out. Any help would be appreciated!

Here is the site so far:
test

Here is the CSS:
/* This rule resets a core set of elements so that they will appear consistent across browsers. Without this rule, content styled with an h1 tag, for example, would appear in different places in Firefox and Internet Explorer because each browser has a different top margin default value. By resetting these values to 0, the elements will initially be rendered in an identical fashion and their properties can be easily defined by the designer in any subsequent rule. */
html, body, div, span, applet, object, iframe, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
border: 0;
outline: 0;
font-size: 100%;
}
/* The body is the outermost layout component and contains the visible page content. Setting properties for the body element will help to create consistent styling of the page content and more manageable CSS. Besides using the body element to set global properties, it is common to use the body element to set the background color of the page and create a centered container for the page content to display. */
