Hello,

I am working on the following tests:

http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/css21testsuite/float-non-replaced-width-013.html

http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/css21testsuite/float-non-replaced-width-014.html

http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/css21testsuite/float-non-replaced-width-015.html

http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/css21testsuite/float-non-replaced-width-016.html

1- Are those tests correct? If no, please explain a bit, preferably by
quoting the relevant chunks of the spec.

2- I have been trying to find the relevant excerpts of the spec to inspire
an meta assert text and could not. I think this kind of nested floats code
situation/scenario has never been anticipated by the spec writers.


Credits note:
The original test which lead me to write these 4 tests is

http://jhop.me/ie8-bugs#emptyfloatcomputedheight
which originates from

regards, Gérard
