Consider the following scenario in Internet Explorer 9 or Internet Explorer 10:

  • You have a windowed ActiveX control, and windowless inline floating frames (IFRAMEs) are used with a larger Z-Index to hide areas of control.

  • You use the webpage in right-to-left (RTL) mode.

In this scenario, the IFRAMEs no longer overlap the areas of control, and the areas of control are clipped on the wrong side.
