    Ok, it was Standards Mode as I expected. The problems was due to the change in the way IE behaves when out of "quirks mdoe".

    For a start, the overflow property applies to the html object rather that the body. So CSS is now:

    html{ overflow:expression("hidden"); }

    Also, the expressions to work out browser size work on documentElement rather than body. As below:

    #scrolls{ height:expression(document.documentElement.clientHeight-97); width:expression(document.documentElement.clientWidth); }

    I've updated the online demo and the download Zip (now version 1.1). I've left an old copy of the CSS page in there for those of you using the DB on a server that still renders pages in Quirks Mode.
