I don't think this is for the problem I'm seeing. I'm not trying to 
change the logo, and there is no horizontal clipping or scrolling 
happening, so the width is ok. I think the problem is the 'font-size' is 
set larger than 3.46em in #logo. If I set that to 3.4em the vertical 
scroll goes away. Maybe there is something wrong with font scaling or 
substitution on my browser.

But with some more digging, I think this may go back to the #logo style 

#logo defines "overflow-y: visible;"

and then

#logoxclip defines  "overflow-x: hidden;"

There is no #logoyclip style.

So it sure looks like that silly vertical scroll bar is by design. Why 
is there an 'xclip' style? Why doesn't #logo just contain "overflow: 
hidden;" and have done with it?

I think the simplest way to solve my problem (so all the edits are to a 
single file) will be to modify swish2.css to
   Change "overflow-y: hidden;" in #logo
and to
   Add "overflow-y: inherit;" to #logoxclip

I've just managed to look at my test site with google chrome browser. It 
has the same problem, so I don't think this is just a case of my firefox 
not being able to scale a font.

I don't think this is a problem at the reference installation at 
Southampton (https://dropoff.soton.ac.uk/) because they're using an 
image for their logo rather than text.

    Do things because you should, not just because you can.
