<meta name="assert" content="An absolutely positioned inline replaced
element with only one value as 'auto' solves for that value
(margin-bottom).">


Firefox 15 (as reported by DOM inspector):
  bottom computed value: -96px
  margin-bottom computed value: 0px

Chrome 21.0.1180.89 (as reported by Web inspector):
  bottom computed value: 96px
  margin-bottom computed value: -192px
(this -192px margin-bottom is possibly what the test expected, was
predicting)

Opera 12.02 (as reported by DragonFly):
  bottom computed value:  96px
  margin-bottom computed value: 0px

and all 3 browsers render the test identically.

At least, Firefox 15 and Chrome 21 balance the constraining equation ...
although any bottom + margin-bottom == -96px would balance the equation.
But from the look of those data, the test is not convincing.

I have no idea right now on how to improve such test. Maybe I'm missing
something here..
