See also bug 230554 comment 6. Note that we currently do not apply 'overflow' from xhtml|body to the viewport (and that is correct): http://annevankesteren.nl/test/css/p/overflow/xhtml-body.xml The URL works correctly in Opera 7.5p3.
Ian, this seems like your sort of thing to QA.... What is the spec likely to end up saying about this issue?
It's likely to say "@viewport allows..." etc.
This may end up being INVALID. Together with bug 242646. The CSS WG seems to have changed the plan of action again.
Well if browsers implemented what the specs said in the first place, we wouldn't have to _change the spec_ to match what was interoperably implemented. :-P
Created attachment 177252 [details] testcase Although this bug may be invalid. We are not setting |overflow| to the viewport at the moment. Somehow we set the scrollbar to the viewport but make it relate to the width of the HTML element. See the testcase for a simple example.
I meant of course, root element.
(In reply to comment #4) > Well if browsers implemented what the specs said in the first place, we wouldn't > have to _change the spec_ to match what was interoperably implemented. :-P Opera actually applies 'overflow' directly to the root element. I just tested it with the attached testcase. The CSS WG must have been testing something different I guess. (There is no interoperable implementation here.)
