I've played with this support some and it seems it could have big
potential.  However, I've a real hard time getting rational support of
overflow and box sizing support to work with IE 6. It claims to be
implementing a strict W3C box model, if that's true then the current
specs. are a little less than 100% useful.

Has anyone found a way to use overflow='auto' with sub-areas (interior
boxes) of XML styled in IE 6 (or any other browser for that matter)? 
I can only get overflow='scroll' to work across an entire frame and
still have the results be predictable...
