Ok, I did a bit more investigating in the specs. I don't know if I'm on the 
right track with this but,
according to the specs, Overflow applies to "block-level and replaced 
elements, table cells, inline blocks".[0]

And also in the specs, "In terms of the visual formatting model, a table 
may behave like a block-level or inline-level element. Tables have content, 
padding, borders, and margins." [1]

So I figured, maybe it's not displaying as a block-level element, so I 
added display:block; to the css selector and that fixed it in Opera and 
Firefox. IE still didn't work without the div though.
