--- Comment #15 from Davison <dlong at nextgentech.net> ---
Honestly this seems like a situation where making iOS Safari work like every other browser would fix a lot more issues than it would break.  As David pointed out, iOS as it is now seems well positioned for finally eliminating this odd behavior.  Whatever tiny fraction of sites that might have a problem are likely very old, already broken on every other browser, and not frequented by almost anyone.

So many people trying to work around this bug have led to a terrible mess of javascript and css hacks that:
1) Frequently don't actually resolve the issue entirely
2) Sometimes appear to expose other iOS Safari issues that complicate things further

Resolving this issue would instantly make modal popups far easier to implement in a simple, cross-platform way.  Thanks to all (especially David) for the work in fleshing this out.
