Why does the specification state "or an infinite size" and "or infinity 
otherwise" then? To me, it seems like as soon as you refer to something that 
can possibly become infinite, you have to deal with infinity... or you need 
to explain that infinity can't possibly happen as an end result, and why. 
It's posible I'm just missing the trick...

To clarify the whole thing a bit, would you mind to state what would be the 
layout of the following piece of HTML :

    html
        body
            header
            div
                p
                p
            ul style="position: absolute"
                li
                li

when the following CSS rule apply :

    * {
        width: fill-available;
        height: fill-available;
    }

?


Thanks,
Fr.
