Description Dave Hyatt 2010-09-22 15:18:28 PDT
Make sure the RenderView uses the block-flow of the root when laying out the root.  This isn't in the spec, but it just seems patently obvious to me that it should work this way.  Otherwise there's no way to control the overall direction of the document, since the <html> wouldn't lay out right.

It's untestable.  You can't see the RenderView's style, and we don't yet do anything layout-wise with block-flow.  Once we do it will be testable.
