I got this from the release notes sections of some of HansB's recipes
-- I think it'll do what you want:

(:div style="height:12em; padding:.4em; border:1px solid #dddddd;
background-color: #f8f8f8; overflow: auto;":)
Code goes here.  Adjust the height and etc. in the style configuration above.

See http://www.qdk.org/pmwiki/index.php?n=Test.Scroll to see it in
action with some random PHP code.

You don't have to use [@...@] if you have a preferred way to display
it (see below) -- this is just a quick way to make sure nothing in the
code is interpreted as markup for your page.
