IE7 fully supports overflow:hidden (boxes don't automatically grow like prior to IE7).  I don't know of any bugs in our implementation, but naturally if you know of any pass them along.

one thing has been bothering me about the content and intent of the
amazon pointer to a quote screen reader unquote friendly page with
quote similar content unquote as the main site, is that i never heard
the message intended for my AT while using a screen-reader in a GUI
environment -- only Lynx displayed what was hidden not only from
CSS-capable browsers, but from half of the target audience -- those
using screen readers...

Developers' Poll: Support for overflow:hidden - is it in the DOM?

john and sean: what is IE7's state of support for

aaron and charles: what is FireFox and FireVox's state of
support for overflow: hidden?

chaals -- is this how my.opera hides the login information
until the Log In link is activated -- when i visited my.opera
with Lynx, i heard the form despite not being logged in nor
activating the Log In link

glen gordon:  is FreedomScientific aware of the WCAG2 technique?
am i correct that the latest version of JAWS does not speak
text marked with overflow: hidden; nor display: none; nor
visibility: hidden;

there is a test page of display:none and visibility:hidden:
archived in the w3c's list archives -- long, possibly wrapping,
URI to follow:

this is why we need to straighten out CSS21's terminology, so
that there IS a technique that is hidden to the eye, but
exposed by an AT, which is why i suggested the meta media
type: render

render unto ceasar what is ceasar's and render unto my AT
visually transparent content...
