Heh, I actually read the exact opposite.  ^_^  That line is really
vague.  The section as a whole is insufficiently precise - it says the
height of a line is the height of the largest child in the line.  Is
that referring to the height property?  Border-box height?  Margin-box
height?  It doesn't say either way.

The correct answer should be the margin box, I believe, like you say.
