Some trivial editorial issues with 9.5 (Floats):[1]

Issue 1:

   # Since a float is not in the flow, non-positioned block boxes created
   # before and after the float box flow vertically as if the float did
   # not exist.

(Relatively positioned boxes are not usually removed from the flow.)

Issue 2:

   # However, line boxes created next to the float are shortened to make
   # room for the margin box of the float. If a shortened line box is too
   # small to contain any further content, then it is shifted downward
   # until either it fits or there are no more floats present.

Delete "further"
(No prior content is referred to.)

Issue 3:

   # Any content in the current line before a floated box is reflowed in
   # the first available line on the other side of the float.

When is the first available line anything other than the current line?
If never, then s/first available/same/
