The page http://people.redhat.com/drepper/ is not visible to the bottom, as the menus on the left side reach out from the page. Erroneously, there is no scrollbar available.

The absolute positioned div is taken out of the normal flow so it will not cause scrollbars.

Sorry but why is this invalid ?
If the information displayed is wider/higher than the display area, scrollbars should be shown. That's what scrollbars are for.
Or am I wrong ???
The website is styling their page that way, they want that menu not to affect the document flow, and that's why there are no scrollbars. Read the spec http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visuren.html#positioning-scheme .
