overflow clips to the padding edge.  The scrolling mechanism is placed  
in between the border and the padding of an element, so the clipped  
area is the padding box.  Content that overflows into the padding box  
is not clipped in Firefox or Safari at least (try setting a negative  
text-indent to make text spill into the padding area of an  
overflow:hidden element to see what I mean).
