Re: Margin Collapse

Thanks for the note. We no longer use this mailing list for technical discussion. Instead, we ask people to open issues on the specification repository

On point #2, there is already an issue open discussing this possibility

On point #1, you would need to be very clear and explicit on WHY you think it would be best for left and right margins to collapse. If it’s just a sense of consistency, then it is very unlikely to happen. You would need to demonstrate a very compelling author need that cannot currently be met for a big change like this to be considered.

Dear Team,
I've got a suggestion related to Margin Collapse. Currently, it works on top and bottom margins BUT;

1. It would be best if left and right margins can collapse..
2. We need to have a property to control the margin collapse behavior, we can add that property to the parent element.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
