FW: Do box properties apply to all elements?

The latest CSS1 doc says that box properties such as margin and border
apply to "all elements", but the description of the formatting model in   
Chapter 4
says that "each block-level element ... is surrounded by a box" and only
explains the box properties in those terms.

Why, therefore, does the doc state that box properties apply to all   
and what does that mean?
