     class=property>float-modifier</code>&rsquo;, provides support for common
     paper-based layouts.

+   <p>(A few words about the difference between mk2 and mk1: Care has now
+    been take to avoid being able to specify layouts that are hard to
+    achieve, or that can be achieved in other ways. For example, by saying
+    &lsquo;<code class=property>top-corner</code>&rsquo; instead of
+    &lsquo;<code class=property>top-left</code>&rsquo; or &lsquo;<code
+    class=property>top-right</code>&rsquo;, it becomes impossible to specify
+    a layout where one has to replace already laid-out content. Compared to
+    the mk1 float model, mk2 does not allow one to explicityly set the
+    containing block of the float; the CB is column or the multicol element
+    (depending on the keyword in use). It is therefore impossible to float
+    something to the top of the page. However, given that &lsquo;<code
+    class=property>column-span</code>&rsquo; now is widely supported, one can
+    make (say) the root element a multicol element. Floating something to the
+    top of the multicol element thereby floats it to the top of the page.)
 
    <p>Four new keywords on &lsquo;<code class=property>float</code>&rsquo;
     have been added:
