DAmn. I got up with a hangover and read this. Naturally it all made sense :)

I concur. Upon giving the spec my complete attention, I believe that the test case I submitted earlier <http://www.concept6.co.uk/mozilla/absPosBug.htm> is in fact a demonstration of the correct action.

The Spec at 10.1.4 says:

<i>If the element has 'position: absolute', the containing block is established by the nearest ancestor with a 'position' other than 'static', in the following way:

1. In the case that the ancestor is block-level, the containing block is formed by the padding edge of the ancestor.M</i>

This means if I was to add style='position:relative' to the the body tag, I would get the behaviour I expected. This is indeed the case as this demo shows <http://www.concept6.co.uk/mozilla/absPosNormal.htm>

In that case, should 51230 be invalid?
