Overflow only clips a boxes contents. If the content overflows, then the
padding-right and padding bottom of the box is not visible outside the
border box if the value for overflow is hidden or not scrollable too
outside the border box if the value for overflow is auto.

# The 'width' property does not apply. A computed

The CSS2.1 clearly defines how layout should work and is much more
precise than scientific theory. Usually the fixes for buggy behavior are
due to understanding why bugs are happening in respect to hasLayout and
knowing how to counter them. Some bugs can never be neutralized since
some browsers do not completely follow the CSS2.1 specs.
Overflow hidden is a method often used to contain floats (IE6- needs a
hasLayout trigger). The alternative is clearFix (IE7- needs a hasLayout
