Clarification on float & position:relative

I'm looking for clarification on CSS2's float definition:


It states that float applies to "all but positioned elements and generated
content", which would mean that float can only be set for elements whose
'position' property has a value of 'static'[1]. OTOH, the very next
paragraph says that "[float] may be set for elements that generate boxes
that are not absolutely positioned."

So, can float be set for relatively positioned elements?
