Setting Minimum Div Height

© 2011, Martin Rinehart

This is the quick summary that I hope Google finds for the next sorry frontender being driven to drink trying to make MSIE work like a real browser.

MSIE defaults to a minimum div height of 17 pixels, happily disregarding your specifications. This reserves space for a horizontal scroller. If you set overflow: none; in your CSS (or xxx.style.overflow = 'none'; in your JavaScript) you will get the height you want. And next time you see Balmer, tell him he owes me for four hours of debugging on this one alone. Thanks.
