Boris,

In this precise case above, it is not less meaningful, it is not less
self-explanatory, it is not less understandable.

It seems to me that you use, for instance,

<div style="position: relative; font-size: 2em;">
<div style="position: relative; z-index: 1; color: red; padding: 1px;">

in several dozens of table-anonymous-objects-xxx.htm testcases. I have
suggested

  <div id="rel-pos-wrapper">
    <div id="rel-pos-red-overlapped">

as a replacement for such inline styles.

Now, it is all up to you, Boris, to adopt such suggestion, to ignore
such suggestion altogether or to come up with better id semantics.

regards, Gérard
