How about this replacement (draft for now):


Still remaining
"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

"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
