An asbpos table-cell's auto position is defined as the first of the
following that exists:

Its vertical position is:
* the top inner edge of the padding box of the table-row it would be
placed in if it weren't absposed
* the top inner edge of the padding box of the following table-row
* the bottom outer edge of the border box of the preceding table-row
* the top inner edge of the padding box of the table

Its horizontal position is:
* the left outer edge of the border box of the following table-cell
* the right outer edge of the border box of the preceding table-cell
(this includes row-spanned cells that intrude into the row the
table-cell would be placed in if it weren't absposed)
* the left inner edge of the padding box of the table-row
* the left inner edge of the padding box of the following table-row
* the left inner edge of the padding box of the preceding table-row
* the left inner edge of the padding box of the table
