In the CSS2 spec, the min/max-size properties are handled as a post-processing step, in which the limit, if applied, gets substituted in as the value of the affected property.

> Then apply the rules under "Calculating widths and margins" above, as if 'width' were computed as this value. &sect;10.4

So the spec is correct.

In the CSS3 specs, we try to incorporate the min/max limits into the sizing algorithms. I'm not sure if this is a better or worse approach, but anyway, CSS2 is afaict correct.
