2.1.48 [CSS-Level2-2009] Section 10.3.7, Absolutely positioned, non-replaced elements


The specification states:

5. 'width' is 'auto', 'left' and 'right' are not 'auto', then solve for 'width'

Quirks Mode (All Versions)

Absolutely positioned elements cannot be sized by their right and left values. They must have either an intrinsic or specified width.
