Arron,

        <meta name="assert" content="The containing block's width
depends on this element's width because the resulting layout has
not been defined in CSS2.1." />

The test text assert is claming something that does not seem to make
sense. The proposition
"
because the resulting layout has not been defined in CSS2.1
"
has no reason to be stated, given in the test's text assert. The div's
width is 0 since its content span is taken out of normal flow.

The span#span1 used width is given by its "XX" content.

Section 10.3.7 should apply
10.3.7 Absolutely positioned, non-replaced elements
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visudet.html#abs-non-replaced-width

"
'width' and 'right' are 'auto' and 'left' is not 'auto', then the width
is shrink-to-fit .
"

I think the purpose and target of this test should be re-considered.

Gérard
