to compare with

[nightly-unstable] (tomorrow, after build)


I changed a few property values in that test:

font-size: 20px has been declared; it replaces the default font-size:
16px so that 0.2em value does not create fractional pixels.

border-width: thin has been replaced with border-width: 1px so that a
reftest can be done reliably.

Before or without those changes, there was a 2px to 4px difference in
the horizontal gap between block B and block C between various browsers;
as coded, there was supposed to be a 2.4px horizontal gap between margin
box of block B and margin box of block C. Such 2px to 4px difference was
only due to fractional pixels (3.2px) affecting horizontal margin and
padding. 8 mult by 3.2px could give 24px, 25px or 26px in browsers after

The whole test design and logic remains as it was.
