I don't know how it's done in FrontPage, but in CSS you add the following to your body declaration:
Code:
scrollbar-face-color: #f0e68c; scrollbar-highlight-color: #ff8000; scrollbar-shadow-color: #ff8000; scrollbar-3dlight-color: #ff0000; scrollbar-arrow-color: #000000; scrollbar-track-color: #ffffff; scrollbar-darkshadow-color: #f0e68c;
The color is not pink, but you can experiment using a color-picker.

A few words of warning: This is not standards-compliant and only IE and Opera support colored scrollbars. They do not show in Firefox, Chrome, Safari, any iOS, Android, or other mobile browser. Also, as soon as you declare a DTD on a page, they return to the browser default color.

Good luck,
Kevin

Changing settings in a local copy of Internet Explorer won't change the appearance of a web-site for others.

Try reading here which may help you implement Kevins method directly on one page rather than as a CSS.

The page I've linked to has a neat set of colour bars to help with colour picking.
