The CSS provided by Mozilla are very bad examples. I suppose they wrote them 
as a torture test because they could obtain the same result with a less 
complex set of rules.

Amaya made progress in the support of the Visual formatting model,
but it doesn't provide the same result when resolving a conflict between CSS 
rules like in this example: a inline-level element (should fit its content's 
size) includes a block-level element (should take the parent size).
The inline is not necessary except for generating the conflict.
