           Summary: Zero margin quirk not quite right
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Spec bugs
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org

The spec says in the rendering section

"When a Document is in quirks mode, margins on HTML elements that collapse with
the top or bottom of the initial containing block, or the top of bottom of td
or th elements, are expected to be collapsed to zero."

I see the zero-margin effect also when I set a border on body or th/td. Margins
don't collapse when there's a border, so the spec is not in effect in that
case, AFAICT.
