Overflow hidden not working on Android

I have a picture displaying in a DD which has rounded corners. When I build it and get it on an android device the overflow:hidden doesn’t work and the full picture shows over the dd. Anyone else have this issue and know a workaround/fix?

This is the CSS for the DD.

    Overflow:hidden doesn’t work on android when the element is relative or absolute position.

    The simplest workaround is to have an outer element with relative/absolute and an inner element with the overflow.

    <div style="position:absolute">
      <div style="width:100%; height:100%; overflow:hidden">

    Had to wrap the image in 2 divs/sections/dd and put overflow:hidden on the inner one. In this case the section.
