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.

    Vertical-align... top & bottom

CSS WG response:
   Added a paragraph to define "aligned subtree":

     The following values align the element relative to the line box.
     Since the element may have children aligned relative to it (which
     in turn may have descendants aligned relative to them), these
     values use the bounds of the aligned subtree. The <dfn>aligned
     subtree</dfn> of an inline element contains that element and the
     aligned subtrees of all children inline elements whose computed
     'vertical-align' value is not 'top' or 'bottom'. The top of the
     aligned subtree is the highest of the tops of the boxes in the
     subtree, and the bottom is analogous.

   Changed definitions:

     'top'
        Align the top of the aligned subtree with the top of the line
        box. 
     'bottom'
        Align the bottom of the aligned subtree with the bottom of the
        line box.


For the CSS WG,
Bert
