aha or oops. I see that a reference or 2 in chapter 10 is linked in css21. The
first refs are in chapter 9 and so should be linked, as should the remainder in
10 for consistency. Although the link for "inline replaced elements" describes
the calculations for width, it doesn't define what they are. 

(I had found the problem in css2 and then checked ch 9 and saw there were also
no links there when I reported the problem.
So I didnt notice the link in ch 10 until after I sent the initial mail.)
