Summary: Define “in-flow”
URL: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2010Sep/0310.html

Resolution: Make in-flow mean not out-of-flow, check that spec remains correct.


An element or :before/:after pseudo element is called _out_of_flow_ if it is floated, absolutely positioned, or is the root element.

An element or :before/:after pseudo-element is called _in-flow_ (or: _in the normal flow_) if it is not out-of-flow.

The _flow_ (a.k.a. _normal flow_) of an element A is the set consisting of A, all in-flow elements whose nearest out-of-flow ancestor is A, and the in-flow :before/:after pseudo-elements, if any, of all elements in the set.
