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:

    S8.2 Examples of margins, padding, and borders

    # The content width for each LI box is calculated top-down; the
    # containing block for each LI box is established by the UL
    # element.

    The relationship between these two sentences is not clear. What
    does top-down calculation have to do with the UL establishing a
    containing block for each LI?

CSS WG response:
    The spec seems clear to us. (It's basically saying the same thing
    in two different ways: the widths are determined from the root
    element down to the inner most elements, via the containing block

For the CSS WG,
