Opera Overflow Bug When No Explicit Width Is Set.

Without an explicit width set on an element that has position:relative or position:fixed set, overflow:auto and overflow:scroll do not work in Opera 6.06, 7.23, 7.54 or 8.0. Oddly enough it does work in Opera 7.02, except Opera 7.02 ignores max-width.

After submitting this bug to QuirksMode.org's Bug Report System, I realized that this happens only when the element has position:relative or position:fixed set.

The work around is to add a container for the div with overflow:auto or overflow:scroll and apply the min-width and max-width to the container and give width:100% to the div with overflow:auto or overflow:scroll. This compensates for the problem in Opera 7.02 as well.
