Hello,

http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/CSS3WritingModes/Orthogonal-flow-Example14.xht

What should be the used height of div#vertical-rl ?

In Chrome 40+ it is 64px ; its offsetHeight is 102px.

In IE11 and Firefox 40 it is 162px ; its offsetHeight is 200px;

I have read carefully sections 7.3, 7.3.1 and 7.3.2 and I am not sure 
how the sizing of auto height block in orthogonal flow is supposed to be 
achieved.

If I add more words in div#vertical-rl, then div#vertical-rl's used 
height in Chrome is sized to 162px.

------

Is section 7.3.2 exclusively about multicolumn elements? This isn't 
clear.
