overflow: hidden

I’ve never really played with the CSS overflow property, partly because I don’t trust it to work in a decent number of browsers. Haiko Hebig’s Title Pictures show off a clever use for the property to display varying amounts of an image depending on the user’s browser size; what’s more, I’ve tested it and it works in Gecko, Opera 7 and IE6 (no IE5 to test on at the moment).
