    Visible - Content is not clipped, i.e., it may be rendered outside the Div box. Hidden - This value indicates that the content is clipped and that no scrolling mechanism should be provided to view the content outside the clipping region; users will not have access to clipped content. Scroll - This value indicates that the content is clipped and that if the user agent uses scrolling mechanism that is visible on the screen (such as a scroll bar), that mechanism should be displayed for the Div whether or not any of its content is clipped. Auto - The behavior of the 'auto' value is user agent-dependent, but should cause a scrolling mechanism to be provided for overflowing Div's.
