Summary of Issue: Known failures should include setting main page container overflow to hidden preventing scrollbars
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
I've found a number of pages that set the main page container to overflow: hidden thus preventing horizontal scrollbars from appearing when resizing the page.  Skittles.com is an example.
 
Add a new failure stating any technique that prevents scrollbars from appearing when the page is resized that also causes the text/content from being cut off would fail this success criteria.
 


Proposed Change:
Known failure: setting the overflow style to hidden on containing elements preventing scrollbars to appears when the page is zoomed up to 200% in the user agent.
