STEPS TO REPRODUCE Float a left float to the right of the right edge of a normal flow box, as in: http://hixie.ch/tests/adhoc/css/box/float/006.xml ACTUAL RESULTS We don't mvoe the text down. EXPECTED RESULTS See test case. This is yet another floater bug. I feel almost embarassed to file these now. We have so many it's not even funny. Oh, by the way, Opera gets this right (in HTML, anyway). Mac IE and Win IE get this wrong because they misplace the box altogether, so I guess at least with this one we aren't doing altogether badly. cc'ing dbaron (out of habbit) and glazman (he asked me to CC him on CSS bugs).
Triaging: floater bug -> attinasi
Moved FLOAT to Summary
Moving Mozilla 1.01 bugs to 'future' milestone with priority P1 I will be pulling bugs from 'future' milestones when scheduling later work.
It doesn't match how Safari or Opera renders it, so which of the three renderings is correct?
Err, wait, I misread the testcase; our rendering is probably wrong. (The only reason we can pull off a rendering like this is due to our over-engineered space manager which is way too flexible.) I can't seem to find any text in the spec that actually says that text isn't allowed to flow to the left of a left float, though.
(Safari and Opera render the testcase slightly differently from each other due to font-size differences; the significant bit is the text in the second block.)

This was fixed by bug 191448; I confirmed by checking the 1.9.1-branch nightlies for 2009-02-12 and 2009-02-13: it was fixed between those nightlies. (I used branch because I wanted to check that it wasn't fixed by the patch, broken by the followups, and then refixed later.)
