Goto www.thedbo.com.au, choose winter.
The frame containing "thredco cams" & "snow report" will have sliders (which it
shouldn't, and part of "thredbo cams" image will not mask correctly with the slider.
Displayed correctly in IE5 & Navigator 4.7.3, but not in Mozilla M17.

If you also goto the "thredbo cams" link, the camera images are not aligned
correctly. Incorrectly aligned also in Navigator 4.7.3 (suspect all 4.x), but
works correctly in IE5.

Not checked in linux mozilla.
Changed URL. Confirming 20000820 WinNT4.

Ever confirmed: true

This page has an absolutely positionedDIV and the body tag doesn't take it into 
account when sizing itself and placing the scrollbars on the page.

Note: IE puts the scrollbars at the far right and bottom of the page (which 
looks nicer than just putting them around the size of the body that it would be 
if it were sizing to the content)

Summary: m17: mask / layout problems with thredbo.com.au site → overflow:scroll for body tag, put scrollbars in the wrong place
What IE is doing is wrong. What we are doing as far as scroll bars are concerned
is correct, except for them being below everything (known bug).

Although, the BODY seems to be sized a bit too big. Strange. David?
Upon managerial request, adding the "testcase" keyword to 84 open layout bugs that
do not have the "testcase" keyword and yet have an attachement with the word
"test" in the description field. Apologies for any mistakes.

When I attached the "no Image for Thredbo cam" by accident today, I didn't
notice that the URL for this bug addressed "winter00".
I apologize for that mistake. 

FYI: I couldn't go to the URL mentioned above (winter00) as the webpage is
outdated. However, I checked http://thredbo.com.au/winter01/index.html

I checked Mozilla 0.9.6, Netscape 6.2, Navigator 4.7.4 and IE5 for Mac.
This is what I found out:

I saw nothing wrong with the scrollbar as the reporter mentioned in this case.
For "Thredbo cams":
Mozilla 0.9.6, IE5 and Navigator 4.7.4 can't display any images/picture
cams--broken image
Netscape 6.2 only shows link ( no frame/no image).
[See attachment: "no image for Thredbo cam"]

For Snow Report: the problem I found only on the text (the size)
Mozilla 0.9.6, Netscape 6.2 have similar problem to the text [see attachment: pic2]
See pic3 for Navigator 4.7.4 and pic4 for IE5

Updating URL to page which shows this behavior. Actually there is overflow:auto
not overflow:scroll.

See comment 5 and comment 6.
Summary: overflow:scroll for body tag, put scrollbars in the wrong place → overflow:scroll does not take absolutely positioned div into account
So what's the bug here?  The fact that the <body> is a little too big?
This bug is invalid.
