| FLOATED SPAN
| 
| A SPAN can begin in one block and end in another. According to the
CSS1
| spec, any element can be floated <applause>. How should a floated
SPAN
| that encompasses blocks be treated?

Is that correct?  Can SPAN really start in one block and end in
another?

example:

<P><SPAN>Hello
<P>There</SPAN>

I see this as being wrong as a parser should (ignoring any rules of
SGML) convert to this:

<P><SPAN>Helllo
</SPAN></P><P>There</P></SPAN> <!-- this tag becomes an error -->

So is that really possible?
