I can't figure if that is wrong or correct reading the docs :

Exemple I have : 
<DIV1 pos:relative>
 <DIV2 pos:relativ float:right>
   <DIV3 pos:absolute 50,50>A

In IE, DIV3 is positionned from the top left of the DIV2 even with

In Mozilla DIV3 is positionned from DIV1 topleft when DIV2 is floatted right

But I read a floatted element is a block. And absolute pos element can be
positonned from block elements.

I want to be sure this is a Moz bug. I am French and not sure to understand
all the spec..

Someone knows ? Thxs.
