Hello all,

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101001/html4/abspos-paged-001.htm

uses

 <meta name="flags" content="paged">
  <style type="text/css">
   div { page-break-after: always; }
   h1 { position: absolute; top: 2em; left: 1em; font: 6em monospace; }
  </style>

  <p>Display this in a paged media. The word PASS should display below
  (followed by three mostly-blank pages).</p>

but this code makes no explicit reference to the print medium. By
default, the default medium for style block is "screen", not "all", nor
"print". Shouldn't that style block explicitly use the media="print"
HTML attribute specification?

Same question with

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101001/html4/abspos-paged-002.htm

and possibly others.

regards, Gérard
