           Summary: Undefined term "block equivalent" used in painting
                    order rules in Appendix E
           Product: CSS
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: CSS Level 2

The term "block equivalent" is undefined in CSS21.  We deduce that it must
include inline-level block container boxes such as inline-blocks and
inline-table wrapper boxes, else such boxes do not have their background and
borders painted in the algorithm.

This term should be clarified.
