I have a question related with the absolute position.
In the "absolutely positioned box in the relatively positioned box" example on 9.8.4, 
if the top and left is 'auto', where the box should be positioned?
As I tested, the Chrome (and the other WebKit-based browsers) put it on the same position with the case that the box has a normal position,
but the Firefox put it on the top left position of the containing block (same position with top:0px,left:0px).
So, I confused what is right.

Reconstitution of example with rendering image side by side:
Test from CSS 2.1 test suite:
All the code examples and code excerpts in all CSS TRs should have a link
to a test showing, demonstrating such example in a real, live manner.
Errors would be avoided, issues with length, (proportionality) values,
scalability would be avoided and the instructional value/worth of the
examples would be increased.
