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.

Your e-mail:

    :first-line
    This entire section takes the "fictional tag sequence" idea
    a bit too literally. For example,
    # the user agent could generate the appropriate start and
    # end tags for SPAN when inserting the fictional tag
    # sequence for :first-line.
    No. You can't make the tags real, because then you wind up
    with an obscure box model. Suppose, for example, I specify
    span { border: 1px solid}. The border shouldn't indicate a
    split in the span element at the end of the first line.

CSS WG response:
    Changed to: "the user agent could simulate start and end tags for
    SPAN when inserting the fictional tag sequence for :first-line."



For the CSS WG,
Bert
