           Summary: Overflow and clear rules not honored together correctly
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 525.x (Safari 3.2)
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://fullof.bs/outgoing/clipfail.html
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: CSS
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: johnhaugeland at yahoo.com

One old trick for making tabs without border bottoms on the active tab, and
also without involving tables, is to make your tabs as a series of inline
elements inside a container, then to follow them with a gap element which is
wider than the container, filled with non-breaking spaces.  

If the gap element and the last tab are clear:none, and the container is
overflow:hidden, then the wide element should be cut off at the edge, providing
a visually filled edge border ignorant of the widths of the tabs. 
Unfortunately, WebKit ignores the clear:none, and wraps the long gap element,
creating a very broken appearance.  All other major browsers (ff, ie, opera,
icab) get this right.

Example code with screenshots of correct and incorrect rendering can be found
