This is the CSS WG's response to an issue you raised on the last CSS
2.1 draft (http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-CSS21-20030915). We want to
publish CSS 2.1 as a CR in about two weeks. Please let us know this
week if you think our response is wrong.

    Section 8.3.1 (Collapsing margins)
    <http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-CSS21-20030915/box.html> "Collapsing
    is based on the computed value of 'padding', 'margin', and
    'border'." The computed value of margin properties is "the
    percentage as specified or the absolute length". What exactly does
    it mean for collapsing be based on the computed value if that can
    be "the percentage as specified"?

CSS WG response:
    Changed "computed" to "used". ("Used" is a new term, defined
    separately.)




For the CSS WG,
Bert
