That's correct, BTW I don't know the meaning of cbDefn.

Since I wrap it with available width, it renders as a block element
(in terms of CSS):

    def wrap(self, availWidth, availHeight):
        # work out widths array for breaking
        self.width = availWidth
        style = self.style
        leftIndent = style.leftIndent
        first_line_width = availWidth -
(leftIndent+style.firstLineIndent) - style.rightIndent
        later_widths = availWidth - leftIndent - style.rightIndent
        self._wrapWidths = [first_line_width, later_widths]

+        for f in self.frags:
+            cb = getattr(f, 'cbDefn', None)
+            if cb and cb.kind=='flowable':
+                cb.width, cb.height = cb.flowable.wrap(availWidth, None)
+                f.width = cb.width
