Which used to cause many high profile sites to fail very badly and still 
commonly results in some elements being hidden by overlaps.

(I haven't noticed the problem recently, but it also used to cause 
overlapped text when people used absolute line heights, which was quite 
common, including some pages generated by Microsoft proxies.)
