Yes, but it doesn't mention anything regarding _negative_ margins, neither there are any examples of such. 

The specs mention zero margins:
"The margin edge surrounds the box margin. If the margin has 0 width, the margin edge is the same as the border edge."
but nothing regarding negative. Neither does the section on "Calculating widths and margins" (in particular section 10.3.5 ) 
say anything regarding negative margins.
        Thank you for your time.
