FF: resize down is possible with width/height, but not with max/min-width/height.

Allows the user to resize an element. Note that most browsers do not allow the element to be resized to a smaller size than the original.

Note that the element to be resized must have an overflow other than visible.


Try to resize the test <p> in both dimensions.

Try to resize the test <p> horizontally.

Try to resize the test <p> vertically.

p.test {
	border: 1px solid #000000;
	overflow: auto;

p#both {
	resize: both;

p#hor {
	resize: horizontal;

p#ver {
	resize: vertical;

This paragraph has min-width: 1000px

This paragraph has height: 100px

This paragraph has max-height: 100px

This paragraph has min-height: 100px
