CSS Test: @page page-break-inside (inline elements)

Good test, but two things: 1. Remove @page from the page title, and 2. give the second spacer element the negative top margin: this will avoid triggering any bugs in negative margin handling at page breaks.

This test works: it passes all current known implementations.

BUT, I'm struggling with the test design (and with testing page-breaking, in general). The spec quite explicitly calls out that a UA may break anywhere… How do you fail a UA for breaking before the b, or the a for that matter? It's certainly allowed. It's even a reasonable heuristic, to break near the end of the page at start of a new paragraph, even if widows don't force a new page; we've seen Prince do something similar on another test.

We could redesign the test to greatly reduce the likelihood of accidental failure, by setting the avoid on a big span that starts up high on the page: a page break there would almost certainly indicate a defect, rather than a reasonable heuristic. But to make this work, we pretty much have to create a page-size-specific test, which we generally try to avoid.

Guess I'll post to public-css-testsuite and see what others think.

Elika prefers this design, and I didn't hear anything from anyone else, so I guess we'll stay with this until proven guilty. ;-)

The spec has changed wrt this assertion, which means the test needs to be redesigned. (page-breaking properties *may* be applied to inline as well as block elements.)
