I cannot immediately see that WebKit is wrong. It depends on what constitutes the "outer edge" of a box when it has negative margins.

This issue is not a bug. It's rendered as expected in Webkit and Opera. Negative margin is a workaround for Firefox bug that renders floated select element to low in this case.

Hmm, it's better to classify the bug as evangelism issue. The site should correct its code.

Firefox renders the two test cases the same as WebKit nightly r56669.

The site still hasn't fixed the issue.
