Floated containing block - testcase (1.46 KB, text/html)

no flags Details

Description User image Val Sharp 2001-02-03 03:58:24 PST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.6 [en-gb]C-CCK-MCD  (Win98; I)
BuildID:    2001012020

An Absolutely Positioned element with offsets specified, e.g. 'top' and/or 
'left', will not recognise a block which is both Relatively Positioned and 
Floated as its containing block. 

However, if the Absolutely positioned element has no offsets specified, i.e. 
auto, then it does use the relatively positioned floated block as its containing 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
The attached testcase illustrates both these situations:

Example 1 shows the Absolutely Positioned element with 'top:0px; left:0px' 
wrongly positioned outside the containing block.

Example 2 shows that the Absolutely Positioned element, with neither 'top' nor 
'left' specified, is properly contained within its containing block.

Examples 3 & 4 are the same as Examples 1 & 2, except the containing block is 
only Relatively Positioned, not Floated, showing that it's the use of Float in 
the containing block that causes the problem.

Expected Results:  The position of the absolutely positioned element should be 
calculated with respect to its containing block, even if that block is floated.
