We have a Web application for medical providers. There's a list that takes
up much of the page, listing office visits, reports or things like that.

We're looking at how tall to make the list -- it can either hold an
integral number of rows of data (fitting n rows exactly) or the last row
could partly fit and be cut off at the bottom of the list.

Visually, I prefer to have an integral number of rows. Functionally, I
wonder if having the last row cut off will help users realize that there is
more information they can scroll to see.

Anyone have any experience to share? Failing that, any good opinions? (Of
course, this assumes that we even have the option to make the list show
part of a row, but let's ignore that for now.)

Send comments to me, I'll send a summary back to the list.

thanks                          -- hs
