     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.)
