I'm not sure. How about, "return a ClientRectList object containing
ClientRect objects for the caption box(es) as well as the table box(es),
with each caption box appearing after the table box with which it is
associated, if any. Note that multiple table and/or caption boxes can arise
due to page and column breaks." This leaves quite a lot undefined, but
defining everything is pretty hard given the possibility of captions
appearing on different pages and captions being split.

Ah. So for each "anonymous block box" you take the child box(es) until you
