Several people inside Opera wonder how CSS interacts with the Line  
Breaking Properties standard[1]. Especially as it defines some very  
specific rules for displaying certain text, but does not say how this  
interacts with CSS. If you have:

  <span>ABC </span>]

... and the SPAN element has a 'border'. Is line-breaking allowed? I  
assume it is allowed when the SPAN is set to 'display:block'.

It seems that Internet Explorer has support for this standard (I have not  
tested thoroughly, I heard about it today) and Opera has some too. Other  
browsers like Firefox and Safari seem to have implemented different  

Does the CSS WG expect to address this issue?

Kind regards,

Anne van Kesteren
