How to Use CSS Overflow

See the original posting on DZone Python

The CSS overflow property specifies what to do in case content is too large to fit in the container box. It specifies if a scrollbar should appear, or if content gets clipped.

The overflow property is a shorthand for overflow-x and overflow-y. The overflow-x property specifies handling the overflow in the horizontal direction, while overflow-y specifies handling the overflow in the vertical direction.
