If B is the width of the page area, yes. But the layout algorithm will 
not result in that with 'width: auto' in B and any content in A or C. It 
tries to distribute the space between B and an imaginary AC box.

In other words, it does a table-like layout with an additional 
constraint that A and C have the same outer size.
