This test assumes a negative margin should result in a horizontal scrollbar. The spec currently does not define how or if a scrolling mechanism should be available because of the negative margin. This behavior is left up to user agents. 

None of the major browsers display a scrollbar in this case. The testcase source itself seems unsure, in a humorous way: 

<p class="five"> &nbsp;&nbsp;This page should have a horizontal scroll bar. </p> <!-- or should it? dum-dum-dummm.... -->

This test case is currently invalid and needs to be removed.
