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... -- Peter Hunsberger
