@bfgeek CSS2 just says that "line boxes are shortened" - you're looking for a more precise definition of this?

You mentioned on today's call that you looked at Gecko's code and saw that it pretty much matched Blink's. I'm assuming whatever we define should be useful for both regular floats and floats with shape-outside.

Right now, the shapes spec says "line boxes next to a float are shortened as necessary to avoid intersections with the float area" - is this wrong, or just imprecise? How would you change this?
