I've switched over the wording to

   - If the center box exists, ...
   - If a margin box is not generated, then the used values of
     its width, left and right padding, and left and right border width
     in these formulas are all 0.

Though I'm not 100% sure what the spec intended, I think this new wording
is more correct.
