CSS would need to be in the baseline, but I still think that should be
a failure; if someone uses their own style sheet, the natural tab
order will be out of sequence if CSS has been used by the developers
to rearrange content. I don't understand the issues with with
technologies, such as PDF, so don't have suggestions for the wording.

Is there a situation where a column is a continuation of another
column that is understandable when the continued column isn't
processed in its entirety? At best, I can only see that situation
arising with a new column on a new row, in which case it wouldn't be a
continuation, but I suspect I'm spectacularly missing the point.

Best regards,
