Hello,

I believe this test

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20110323/html4/clear-applies-to-015.htm

may be incorrect.


Summary of issue 120:
Spec talks about blocks but leaves out table-caption etc.
http://wiki.csswg.org/spec/css2.1#issue-120

"
  The caption boxes are block-level boxes that retain
  their own content, padding, margin, and border areas,
  and are rendered as normal block boxes inside the table
  wrapper box.
"
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/tables.html#model

-----------

Current test:
http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/css21testsuite/clear-applies-to-caption-boxes.xhtml

I believe Opera 12.11 handles this test correctly.

Firefox 17.0.1, Chrome 23.0.1271.97 and Konqueror 4.9.4 are wrong.

Am I wrong here?
