This is a long sentence created to help the generation of an horizontal scrollbar for testing purpose. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Expected results: there should an horizontal scrollbar created, rendered.

Actual results in Internet Explorer 8 beta 2: there is no horizontal scrollbar created, rendered. The line wraps right after the image.

Note: if the image is removed, then IE 8 beta 2 creates, renders an horizontal scrollbar and puts the #tested-long-sentence on 1 single line.
