This is one of the craziest things I've seen on a web site:

<body style='overflow:hidden;margin:0px;padding:0px;'>
<script type="text/javascript">
if(!window.parent || window.parent == window) {
  document.body.style.overflow = '';

In other words they deliberately don't let you scroll when JavaScript is disabled, and indeed you can't scroll in Firefox with JavaScript disabled.

The bit in the script that sets the body element's CSS overflow property to '' is one of the bits of JavaScript handling we've not got to yet.

This seems such a bizarre thing to do that I actually wonder if it is an error in their site coding; I have e-mailed the newspaper to enquire.
