But your diagram indicates you are already doing so. FWIW, I agree with Tab. Based on your attachment, I think what you are doing in Webkit looks very reasonable. If nobody is doing what the spec says, and if the spec is unclear, then I'm favorable to changing the spec to do what Webkit is doing. But are there cases where it produces bad results?
