<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;dael> Topic: maybe 'contain-size' shouldn't apply to display:table-caption?<br>
&lt;dael> github:<br>
&lt;dael> florian: This was raised by dbaron because size containment is desc as not apply to table parts. Table caption is not a table part. It is intentional.<br>
&lt;dael> florian: Table cells and the like need no size containment because general table layout you can't make it smaller then inflow content. trying to do so through containment wouldn't work unless we define how it works in terms of layout. Table caoptions do not have that limitation. No strong reason for it to have size containment not work<br>
&lt;dael> florian: Therefore I propose close no change.<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Even if your reasoning is accepted I think there should be a note<br>
&lt;dael> florian: Perfectly reasonable, yes. Thanks<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: dbaron does it make sense to you?<br>
&lt;dael> dbaron: I guess...I'm still not convinced table captions are that different in characteristics that matter<br>
&lt;dael> florian: If you take a tbale cell with some content with widht 0 it won't have a 0 width. For a caption it will. That's what matters here<br>
&lt;dael> dbaron: Table cell with div inside div can be 0.<br>
&lt;dael> florian: On table cell yes<br>
&lt;dael> dbaron: Interesting thing is how sizes interact rather then how sizes interact with content<br>
&lt;dael> florian: Size containment changes how you find the size. How it influences things around doesn't change.<br>
&lt;dael> dbaron: IN both cases you compute the size in a larger process. You're saying contain size means contents don't influencec size.<br>
&lt;dael> florian: Yes you size as if empty, then layout content without changing that resolved size.<br>
&lt;dael> florian: It is an undefined operation on table cells, defined on table captions.<br>
&lt;dael> dbaron: I'm okay with that<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Objections to close with an explanation note in the spec and no change?<br>
&lt;dael> RESOLVED: close with an explanation note in the spec and no change<br>
