Description Devin Chalmers 2007-01-25 21:27:09 PST
When an input element with 100% width is placed inside an unpadded div with to overflow: hidden, the focus ring around the element is obscured by the edges of the div.

It is possible that this is by design, to fit with the CSS rule to hide overflow on the div. But it seems logical that, for accessibility reasons, the focus ring should not be obscured by any page elements. Otherwise, web pages could obscure the focus ring altogether.
