Hi!

I think the problem is more severe. IE 6 has obviously changed behaviour
compared to IE 5.5. I'd call it a bug. It now always calculates "100%" with
the right-hand bar's width INCLUDED, so there are other side-effects than
the one you are describing, like the last tab on the right being partially
covered by the scroll bar.

So if we change the HTML, it should limit the width of the WHOLE right-hand
frame, not just the textarea's width ...

Unfortunately this will only work automatically with some browser detection
...
