      Michael,

      It actually ended up being the first suggestion that worked out. The
      IFrame shim was the only way I was able to get around the scroll bar
      bleed on Mozilla browsers on OS X.

      I wasn't using the YUI-provided Menu class, so #2 may in fact work for
      those cases.

      Todd,

      Thanks for suggestion the IFrame shim. It worked wonders!!
