That annoying horizontal scrollbar problem with javadocs ?

http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/bugParade/bugs/4852280.html

I especially loved this part:
When Internet Explorer displays a frameset document, if one of the
frames has too much vertical content to fit in its space on the screen,
as expected, a vertical scrollbar appears. Unfortunately, IE considers
the rectangular area *behind* the scrollbar as space for text layout.
The result is that the document lays out behind the scroll bar, and in
a stunning example of doublethink, IE then says "Whoops, the layout is
running off the right side of the page" and also displays a horizontal
scrollbar. Even resizing the frame manually won't get rid of the horizontal
scrollbar (as long as the document still wants more vertical space than
is available to it).

I'd always wondered what was going on with those funny JavaDocs. Thansk for the info, Mike.
