Description Une Bévue 2006-11-15 22:24:46 PST
on the page <a href="http://www.yvon-thoraval.com/CSS/footer_long.html">overflow:auto block the vertical scroller</a> this css is only effective on the div #content.

then, no way to scroll up and down the content of a page whose content is larger than the window height.

obviously this doesn't appear if the content of the page is smaller than the window height, a counter example being here :

<a href="http://www.yvon-thoraval.com/CSS/footer.html">ocounter-example</a>

no need of a vertical scroller at all.

I have encountered the same problem. However this does occur for overflow:scroll as Well. Further the horizontal scrollbar doesn't work either.

I would suggest to change the title to something like:

"overflow:auto and overflow:scroll block the vertical and horizontal scroller"
