Issue 179 concerns the Example in which an inline element is split by a 
block-level element.

The proposal in the wiki (no reference provided) is to replace
"The resulting boxes would be an anonymous block box around the P"
"The resulting boxes would be a block box representing the P"

But there isn't a block box representing the P since it is inline. 
Rather, the boxes are: the block box representing the body which 
contains three block boxes: an anonymous block box around C1, the SPAN 
block box, and another anonymous block box around C2.
