        <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

'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.
