Issue With Overflow:hidden in IE7

Posted on 2009-04-06
Last Modified: 2013-11-19

The twitter feed at the bottom of this page should not be showing the content to the left and right of the content area. It works perfectly in FF. In IE7 it seems the overflow property is not working. Am I applying it incorrectly?
