  • Cc wspee added has added js to explicitly set the visibility style to hidden (see [0] checkTags). Not sure why they might have added this though?!

Do we want to add a workarounds for behavior like this?!

What might a workaround look like? We could use neither of "form", "table", "img", "div", "span", "p", "iframe" (see doChecks) do circumvent this, but this will probably introduce other problems?
