I have two doubts related to:
  http://test.csswg.org/source/contributors/microsoft/submitted/Chapter_9/empty-inline-001.xht

1) The assert:  "Empty inline elements create a zero-height line box".
I don't think this is generally true. It should be more specific (for
example saying something like: "Empty inline elements alone on a
line-box make that zero-height...)

2) The test itself is an empty span with red background. The red will
never appear, even if the span created a non-zero-height inline box,
because the width is always zero. (Background may be moved to the
parent block to prove that the height is zero).


Best regards,
Bruno
