Hi there,

Per https://drafts.csswg.org/css-overflow-3/#overflow-properties
overflow, overflow-x and overflow-y only apply to block containers in
CSS2 land. To me, this means that the resolution of conflicting
overflow-x and overflow-y values is either undefined or UAs shouldn't
allow overflow-x/overflow-y to be specified for tables in the first
place. It looks like everyone does allow the latter so is the next
best step to define in css-overflow the resolution everyone currently
uses in practice, which is to resolve 'hidden' to 'visible' if x and y
conflict?

Thanks,
Robert
