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:

    # margin-top, margin-bottom
    # Applies to: all elements but inline, non-replaced elements and
    #             internal table elements

    Any reason why it doesn't need to apply to inline, non-replaced
    elements? Borders and padding do; they just don't have an effect
    on line-height calculation. Since that seems to be the rationale
    for excluding it, I'd just combine the definitions for all margins
    and leave the no-effect part to the inline model explanation.

CSS WG response:
    Little difference between doesn't apply and no effect. But new
    text reads:

      Applies to:  all elements except elements with table display
                   types other than table and inline-table

For the CSS WG,
