Arron,

One linguistic nitpick.

Please add the preposition "to" in the assert. Even in French, the verb
adjoin requires the "to" preposition in such sentence. Section 8.3.1
uses such "to" preposition too in such sentence.

        <meta name="assert" content="If a block-level sibling has
clearance then the bottom margin of its previous sibling will
not be adjoining its top margin." />

should become

        <meta name="assert" content="If a block-level sibling has
clearance then the bottom margin of its previous sibling will
not be adjoining to its top margin." />

The testcase is good. I just hope that people examining it will see and
understand the phenomenon of clearance being executed (and being the
determinant factor) in such test.

regards, Gérard
