has html5 smartened up?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Writing code for a new page today I found out something a tad odd.
I defined a box and put it in more text than it was designed to hold.
Lo and behold, scrollbars appear! Both ways.
No overflow in the styles.

At first I thought this was peculiar to Firefox.
But IE does the same thing.
So it appears that overflow:scroll is no longer necessary.

About time.
