Frame content slips underneath vertical scrollbar in IE6

With IE6 in strict mode, when in a frame, the frame content extends underneath the vertical scrollbar (when there is a vertical scrollbar, otherwise it's ok).

One example is detailed at http://www.thescripts.com/forum/thread154084.html (although the problem occurs in all such situations, not only in the one described). Unfortunately I am required to keep this page in strict mode (cannot follow the valid advice at that link).

A fix for IE6 in strict mode would be great, I could then use conditional comments so that other browsers won't see it. But what can be done to keep the IE6 page (in a frame) from slipping under the vertical scrollbar?

I haven't personally encountered this problem, but in another forum, a user suggested wrapping a DIV around the IFRAME, and then setting the properties of the DIV, like this:

<div id="iframe_container">
<iframe id="myiframe" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" width="300" height="500" src="/lorem_ipsum.html">
iframe not supported!
</iframe>
</div>

div#iframe_container {
width:318px;
height:100px;
overflow-x:hidden;
overflow-y:scroll;
}

It's worth a try.

So scrolling is disabled for the iframe - no place for the bug - but enabled for the div... interesting idea - thanks. In my case it's a frame (not an iframe), I wonder if I can do the same...
