Oh, I would be very happy if browsers actually did support the |top|
property in this scenario, but Gecko, Safari and Opera all behave the
same in this respect, ie ignoring it, which is striking when being 
off-spec.

We also had a discussion over at css-discuss where arguments were
laid out why it had to be this way, correlating it to the (natural)
problems of doing the same with |height| property (that leads to
recursion). 

Personally I think it would be possible to fix this for the |top| 
property, but what do all the browser implementor experts out there 
say?
And if the spec wants it to be possible, we may need a clarification
for "that" so there is no chance of misinterpretation :-).

Best regards
Mike
