new-site comments - overflow setting hides text, prevents scrolling

Regarding the page http://beta.w3.org/:

Some apparent "overflow: hidden" setting (or possibly the stacking order) makes
some text inaccessible at narrower windows widths.

Apparently, the setting tells the browser to ignore the total width of the text
when computing the page width, so the browser doesn't provide a horizontal
scrollbar, to the page can't even be scrolled to where the text would be if
it were visible.

Browser: SeaMonkey 1.1.14
