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:

    # The margin box of an element in the normal flow that establishes
    # a new block formatting context (such as a table, or element with
    # 'overflow' other than 'visible') must not overlap any floats in
    # the same block formatting context as the element itself. If
    # necessary, implementations should clear the said element by
    # placing it below any preceding floats, but may place it adjacent
    # to such floats if there is sufficient space.

    The margin box of an element in normal flow is always as wide as
    the containing block. What is this rule *supposed* to say?

CSS WG response:
    We think it's good enough. Not made any more precise for CSS 2.1.


For the CSS WG,
Bert
