if I understood correctly, all mozillians are at the Mozilla AllHands and Microsofties at BUILD...
15:50:13 [glazou]
arronei: are you MSFTies going to attend today's call?
15:50:20 [glazou]
or are you at BUILD?
15:51:23 [florian]
I have understood the same about mozz, but I didn't see anything about BUILD in the regrets mail. I am just late on catching up with my mail, or did you hear this in another channel?
15:51:53 [glazou]
well, the whole twitter universe is about the BUILD announcements
15:52:36 [florian]
I see. I don't use twitter all that much

howcome: issue is how margin collapsing works on spanner
16:12:14 [Zakim]
16:12:21 [glazou]
… current spec in CR does not say anything about that
16:12:29 [glazou]
… I suggest to add language for that
16:12:48 [glazou]
… it should happen if two consecutive spanning elements but not with other elements
16:12:56 [glazou]
… spanning lets are usually wider
16:13:05 [glazou]
… collapsing should be messy

16:13:41 [glazou]
howcome reads
16:13:43 [arronei]
well I was my machine rebooted on me
16:13:53 [glazou]
fantasai: seems ok
16:14:35 [glazou]
howcome: two h elements, they should collapse
16:14:52 [glazou]
alexmog: spanning elements are kind of like floats
16:15:01 [glazou]
alexmog: floats don't collapse margins
16:15:05 [glazou]
florian: I see it differently
16:15:27 [glazou]
florian: you intend things to collapse when there is only 1 column
16:15:50 [glazou]
florian: they should collapse then
16:15:55 [glazou]
howcome: yep, least surprise
16:16:07 [glazou]
howcome: but what will happen column-span integer value
16:16:40 [glazou]
alexmog: we are trying to optimize for cases that are rare
16:16:51 [glazou]
alexmog: use cases that don't really exist
16:16:59 [Zakim]
16:17:08 [glazou]
alexmog: make sure elements don't have margins ?
16:17:48 [glazou]
howcome: what if you column span all and margin 10em, does not look like it multicolor at all ; no collapsing then?
16:18:02 [glazou]
howcome: very natural to have collapsing happen then
16:18:12 [glazou]
… not really insisting on this edge case
16:18:19 [Bert]
(Typical case in favor of collapsing: <div><h1><h2.subtitle><p>...</div> with 'div {columns: 20em} h1, h2 {span: all}')
16:18:28 [glazou]
fantasai: I agree with howcome but would make more sense to have them collapse
16:18:33 [glazou]
… two things make sense to me
16:18:37 [Zakim]
16:18:42 [glazou]
… be a formatting context root
16:19:22 [glazou]
… take all consecutive lets that have same column span value and wrap them in anon formatting context root and in that margins collapse
16:19:50 [Bert]
16:19:51 [glazou]
.. children would collapse margin with column spanning parent
16:20:37 [glazou]
howcome: reasonable but what if column span all or one let and 2 on next
16:20:55 [Bert]
s/column-span integer/if column-span has integer/
16:21:13 [glazou]
howcome: fine solution to the problem
16:21:23 [glazou]
… but I would like to have alexmog with me on that
16:21:32 [glazou]
… msft has not done it that way
16:21:46 [glazou]
alexmog: I did not have a chance to think about it before
16:21:56 [glazou]
… if we can avoid margin collapsing it would be nice here
16:22:02 [Zakim]
16:22:03 [glazou]
… no decision yet
16:22:08 [glazou]
howcome: need a week to review it?
16:22:19 [glazou]
alexmog: need to get in touch with implementors
16:22:24 [glazou]
howcome: fine
16:22:39 [glazou]
glazou: next week's agenda?

steve's question was: where there is only 1 column, do spaning elements' margin collapse with non spanning ones? answer was no.

glazou: comments?
16:25:27 [Bert]
(I wonder if that means that we can replace 'overflow: auto' with 'column-span: all' now in order to contain child floats in the element's height...)
