Should be able to reproduce with any block element. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Put a block level element with margin inside one without. 2. Place another block level element so it renders above/below the above parent element 3. Possibly colour both to better see the effect Actual Results: The margin of the child-element is rendered outside the parent's box. Expected Results: Rendered margin inside parent box.
This is how it's supposed to work. See: http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/box.html#collapsing-margins http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visudet.html#q19
