In the page of CSS 'clip' property,
( https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/clip )
it says
> The clip property applies only to elements with position:absolute.

But, the clip property can also apply to position:fixed element.


In CSS 2.1 specification,
It says that the 'clip' property applies to "absolutely positioned elements".
( http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/visufx.html#clipping )
> Applies to: absolutely positioned elements 

And "absolutely positioned element" is defined as:
( http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/visuren.html#absolutely-positioned )
> References in this specification to an absolutely positioned element (or its box) imply 
> that the element's 'position' property has the value 'absolute' or 'fixed'. 


Translated contents also have this description.
As I don't understand how to propagate to others (not only edit en-US page), so I post to Bugzilla.
I fixed the en-US page. Translators will update their page in the future.

Thanks for noticing.
