Both block-in-inline-append-001 and block-in-inline-append-001-ref have
validation issues. The body element must have with a block container.

<!ELEMENT BODY O O (%block;|SCRIPT)+ +(INS|DEL) -- document body -->

As strange as it is, Opera 11.52 (displays a rectangular dotted line
which is 10em wide), Chrome 15.0.874.121 (no dotted outline shown) and
Firefox 8.0 (there are vertical "whiskers" on the left hand side of the
first "A") have 3 different renderings of the reftest. So, they all
"pass" the test ... according to/with 3 different respective reftests
that they render. The test and its reftest definitely fail at
determining in a reliable manner what is a fail condition.

And I think a 4th way of rendering the test and the reftest would be
okay too: with a non-rectangular shape which would outline the outermost
inline.

I have not checked yet with IE8 and IE9.

regards, Gérard
