I had some success faking the behavior you want. I used a border that
matches the page background instead of a margin (which is transparent).
The border will obscure the box behind the float, but it only works in
certain situations and breaks fairly easily. Example here:
Floats are supposed to behave the way you described. If you don't need to
use floats, maybe there is a better solution to your problem.
