Yes I agree but I did link to this last week originally.

Only related in my frustration. Many other things which I had in draft form I just gave up on writing. So you could say that many thing disconnected came out in the same email like my off-list messages from Boris.

Would you like to go through one test case at a time. It just hard sometimes since I have to point to many specs sometimes just concerning one test case. The major spec in question is this.

9.4.1 Block formatting contexts

If your interested I can go through all my old draft messages and construct a logical message with my concerns (unless not obvious in the more recent messages concerning this spec).
