ISSUE-176: Define containing block formed by relpos'd inline split across multiple lines

Define containing block formed by relpos'd inline split across multiple lines

State:
RAISED
Product:
CSS3 Box
Raised by:

Description:
See CSS2.1 Issues 215 (negative containing block widths) and 247 (abspos inside block inside relpos'd inline)

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2010Nov/0444.html

Wrt abspos inside block inside relpos'd inline: using ICB is consistent with rendering tree model (given our block-splits-inline approach), using <span> is consistent with element tree model (pick containing block formed by closest ancestor with relpos). Brad Kemper suggests that using the <span> as containing block is more intuitive for web authors.
