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.

    That 'table' should possibly read table-cell, but i think it makes 
    more sense to update 
    http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-CSS21-20030915/visuren.html#q15
    to include tables as well.

CSS WG response:
    Updated to

      "The margin box of a table or an element in the normal flow that
      establishes a new block formatting context (such as an element
      with 'overflow' other than 'visible') must not overlap any
      floats in the same block formatting context as the element
      itself." 

      (Note that a display:table does not establish a block formatting
      context, a display:table establishes a table formatting
      context.)


For the CSS WG,
Bert
