Elika and Bert chose to have no space between the images and the edges, instead all space is distributed *between* the images. See http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-css-wg/2008JanMar/0153.html
But that still leaves open the question where the image is rendered if there is only room for one tile, see the threads at
And it also leaves open the question what happens if there is room for no tile at all. Is the image not rendered at all? or rendered and cropped? and if so, cropped on which sides?' non-public [Bert Bos]
