Arron,

If margin-left is set on the external-parent div, then it can never
create an horizontal gap between the external-parent and its
inner-child.
Just by changing [+/-]0[px|pc|mm|cm|in|pt|] to a positive value, we can
see that there is still no horizontal gap.
I recently upgraded/updated that test and did not notice this.

I will re-adjust those tests... presumably a total of 27 test
margin-left tests.

I will check carefully for other tests like these.
