Left out the rest:

# For block-level elements this creates an override for inline-level
# descendents not within another block.

Why does adding a "display: block" to an element in a paragraph all

# In this process, non-textual entities such as images are treated
# as neutral characters

as object replacement characters (U+FFFC)
