Well, the outer div has auto height. The inner div has 100% of that, so both correctly end up with 0 height (try putting a border around the inner div to demonstrate this). overflow:scroll means that content that overflows the div is not shown, and the scrollbar cannot be shown because it does not fit in a space of height 0. Giving the outer div a height (either implicitly by putting content in it or explicitly in a style sheet) will of course get rid of all these issues. Over to style system for confirmation, but looks invalid to me..
