With this declaration:

   BODY { overflow: clip; }
   DIV  { top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%;
          overflow: scroll; }

and this markup:

   <BODY>
   <DIV>
   <P>Does this division element fill the UA window?
   </DIV>

what happens?

If the default initial position and size of BODY could be considered
congruent with the UA's window, CSS positioning would provide an
alternative to frames for non-scrolling navigation bars.
