I am slightly confused by the wording in a section of the CSS2 specification.
First of all, I am assuming that the initial containing block is
the one generated by the root of the document tree (the HTML element).
If this assumption is wrong, please inform me :)
The main question is...in one part, the specification says this...
"Block-level elements generate a principal block box that only contains
If this is true...then how is something like this:
The p element establishes a principal block box...but Hi! is inside
of an anonymous inline box. So the principal block box
does not "only" contain block boxes in this case...
If anyone could shed light on this, that would be wonderful.
