Řyvind,

How about this replacement (draft for now):

http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/css21testsuite/c414-flt-ln-002-draft.htm

Still remaining
1-
"The big triple-letter coloured boxes should be level with the top of
the small..."
could be better replaced with
"The top of the big triple-letter coloured boxes should be flush with
the top of the small ..."
because "flush with" is the expression used in CSS 2.1

2-
"on the small box's line before the small box"
could be better replaced with
"on the small box's line on its left side"

3- "dummy text" should be replaced with "filler text"

4- text assert to edit

regards, Gérard
