While coding a wordpress theme, I used CSS RESET present in stakers theme.
Then on body tag I set overflow:hidden.
I was expecting .post class to inherit it but wide images overflowed into sidebar.
I had to again add overflow:hidden for .post class.
This seemed strange to me.
Actually I develop many wordpress themes for clients and I always thought setting "overflow:hidden" on body will prevent all child elements from being overflowed.
Just want to know if my conception about CSS inheritance is wrong in some way?
overflow is only relavant to the object it is styling, and will not cascade like say font would. For example, what if you set overflow:scroll to the body or html tag… then every block object below it would have a X and Y scrollbar attached!
That is a very good point!
it would be madness i say! lol – but very scrolly!
Thanks for your answer Rob. :-)
I seriously had this misconception that everything in CSS cascades (inherits). :o
Is it possible to change the look of the scroll in overflow, ie color, size etc ?…. i just wonderd :o
I think this is for IE – I cant remember – I steer well clear of customising scrollbars with CSS, because it normally looks crap and wont be cross browser.
I would recomend using something like this…

Most of all I would recommend not customising your scrollbars lol
