Float has to have explicit width
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visuren.html#floats
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/visuren.html#floats
|A floated box must have an explicit width (assigned via the 'width' 
|property

But there is new way to handle width:auto; for float in CSS2.1
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visudet.html#q8
compare http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/visudet.html#q8

Initial value of width is auto. So this requirement of explicit width seems 
to be conflicting common sence.

Other stuff:

There should be more id attributes in the spec, so it would be easier to 
refer to exact place. It would propably be easiest to add id (automatically 
)to each paragraph. Now there is parts in spec that have many pages of 
information whitout any id's. Now there is no id's after
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visuren.html#floats for pages.  (CSS-signature 
would be nice also.)

Errors in writing:

The last two paragraphs of Abstract are partly redundant.
