The margin-top/bottom and margin-left/right propdef tables have the same
content; while for the accompanying text, there is some text below the
second table that is intended to apply to all four properties, and some
text between the two tables that's intended to apply to the first two
properties but might be read as applying to the following two
instead.

I suggest using just one table instead of two duplicates
(making sure to use standard top,right,bottom,left ordering when
merging the two headings),
and moving the middle paragraph ("These properties have no effect ...")
to below the following "set the top, right, ... margin of a box"
paragraph, and expanding "These properties" (in "... no effect...") to
"The 'margin-top' and 'margin-bottom' properties" in the process.
