RE: [css-d] Attention browser entomologists; rare species found...

Sent by Harrison, George on 17 May 2002 19:07


I've seen this bug, and probably in 9.9.5/WinNT but I don't remember for
sure. I triggered it by having a div with  overflow:scroll inside a table
cell.  It went away when I moved up to 9.9.9. 

I thought it was pretty cool.
