> I would propose as 2 rules:
I guess we would call this rule audience. but my main concern was just IE,
Mozilla, and Opera at least for now.

2) Define a strategy for addressing box model implementation variation

>This is a bit vague for me to put into a rule. This I assume is
positioning within the box padding or positioning the box itself, float
absolute positioning and margins.
By strategy you mean??
I want rules that are a basis for good design not so much strategies.
