Hi,
CSS 2 defined replaced elements as:
"An element for which the CSS formatter knows only the intrinsic 
dimensions. In HTML, IMG, INPUT, TEXTAREA, SELECT, and OBJECT 
elements can be examples of replaced elements. ..."
CSS 2.1 uses:
"An element for which the CSS formatter knows only the intrinsic 
dimensions. In HTML, IMG and OBJECT elements can be replaced 
elements."

How are form type elements supposed to be handled in CSS 2.1?  
'width' etc will apply in actual implementations, and the baselines 
wont really be at the bottom margin edge always?
