This extends the area in which content can be seen. However, it doesn't change the flow of the content, so the only visual effect is that more content can be seen below the element. The text does not flow out to the right, because the width of its line boxes is still constrained by the width of the positioned element. If there had been an image wider than the positioned element, or preformatted text with a long line, this might have been visible to the right of the positioned element, up to the point where the clipping rectangle ends.
