DOM Inspector sidebar must be installed to see this behavior.

1. Open DOM Inspector sidebar.
2. Open Object tab.
3. Choose Object - Box Model.
4. Open sidebar to its maximum width.

Actual behavior: The content overflows the max width of the sidebar.

Expected behavior: I should be able to open the sidebar wide enough to be able
to see the entire view. The displayed content also should not exceed a
reasonable sidebar width.

Suggested fix:
Cause the displayed content to be within a reasonable sidebar width. I
understand this to be much narrower than the maximum allowed width of the
sidebar. I typically open my sidebar just enough to read the titles of the tabs.
Therefore, a suggested max width for any sidebar content would seem to be 25-50
em. That's a random guess. More testing would be necessary to confirm an actual
em value.

Bah. I forgot to include build and platform information. Sorry for the spam.

I'm seeing this behavior on 2002070204-trunk build on Windows 98.
