Thanks a lot, David, I've got your idea.

Actually body and paragraph margins do collapse here:
<body><p>text</p></body>

My problem was that I've forgot that root element is HTML and not BODY.

"Margins of the root element's box do not collapse."

Beg my pardon for this stupid question.

Are you sure?  Did you check the mode in context menu -> View Page Info?

As I said before, i don't think this has anything to do with collapsing.

It has nothing to do with collapsing.  It has to do with what the
computed value of 'margin-top' is.  Did you check that computed value
using the DOM or in DOM Inspector?

(I assume you're talking about the distance between the top of the
viewport and the top border of the paragraph, since that's the only
thing that could be measured in the testcase you gave.  And there's
really nothing else I could add without seeing a URL for the actual
testcase you're talking about.  Never mind that this is rapidly getting
off-topic for this list...)
