Using the following builds: Windows: 04-03-09-m15 Mac: 04-03-08-m15 Linux: 04-03-08-m15 Open the attached file. There are two divs. The yellow div has top and left padding of 50px. It is relatively positioned. The fuchsia div is absolutely positioned within the yellow div (its containing block) with the following values: left: 50px; top: 50px Expected result: the absolutely positioned fuchsia div should display 100px from the top side of the yellow div and 100px from the left side of the yellow div because it first needs to take into consideration the padding of the containing block. 10.1 of the CSS2 specs states: If the element has 'position: absolute', the containing block is established by the nearest ancestor with a 'position' other than 'static', in the following way: 1. In the case that the ancestor is block-level, the containing block is formed by the padding edge of the ancestor.
The padding-edge is the outside edge of the padding (the content edge is the inside edge). Therefore the bit of CSS2 that you quote says that the current behavior is correct. Marking INVALID.

Netscape's standard compliance QA team reorganised itself once again, so taking remaining non-tables style bugs. Sorry about the spam. I tried to get this done directly at the database level, but apparently that is "not easy because of the shadow db", "plus it screws up the audit trail", so no can do...
