Hello Elika, Rossen & everybody,

I have a question regarding an edge-case for unforced breaks that doesn't seem to be specified anywhere.
What happens when an unforced break occurs in the middle of the margin of the last child of a block container that has a border? You can see this scenario in [1], with multi-col. Should the part of the margin *after* the break be discarded (Gecko[2]) or should it be preserved (WebKit[3], Opera[4])?
And more importantly, what part of this spec (if any) describes this case?

Thanks in advance,
Mihai
