           Summary: Desire to define "Block container element"
           Product: CSS
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: CSS Level 2
        AssignedTo: bert@w3.org

The term "Block container element" is not defined in CSS21 (although block
container /box/ is, in 9.2.1.).

In places where the context is elements (such as the "Applies to" line of
properties) we have tended to write "block containers", deliberately omitting
the final word so as to make the phrase suitably ambiguous to work around the
lack of definition. In some places we don't even make that effort: 10.8.1
refers to "block container elements" after the definition of the
'vertical-align' and 'line-height' properties and even links back to 9.2.1
where of course there is no definition.  The term "block container element" is
likely to be useful in proposals to solve Bug 17778 and Bug 17782.
