In response to Eric's comments on Sunday, I decided to write a
comprehensive description of the inline box model as I understand
it.  This is both an explanation of CSS2's inline box model and a
proposal for clarification and modification of it, along the lines
that I have proposed before in this group.  I think most of the
changes give the results intended by the rules in the spec.  Since
font size issues are part of the inline box model, I have had to
include a possible solution for problems with fonts discussed late
last year [1].

Anyway, it's available at:


I would be interested to hear what others have to think about this
