This does not solve the missing content bug.


HÃ¥kon, you can not used an absolutely positioned block element container 
with Opera since any content that overflows the bottom of the viewport 
is clipped.

Also, if you drag the bottom of the veiwport up and then down, you will 
have missing content. See attached screenshot 
'missing-content-height-absolute.png' showing this bug.

Firefox, Chrome and IE will always have a scroll bar to access the 
overflow. Opera will never produced this scroll bar due to the 
absolutely positioned block element container.
