* The most useful thing would be,in my mind, to have a different attribute
* in addition to float (W3C gives me a strange error when I try to bring up
* the Style page so I can't check the Spec... would you guys get your server
* straight? :-)) sich as "fixed" or "window" or "frame" whoch would float it
* to left, right, top or bottom and make it stick there as a frame.

Try <URL:http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/TR/NOTE-layout.html>  The Style page
seems to be down, but I was able to get to this from the Tech Report
page.

The cool thing about the proposed frames-in-css is how it picks the items
to place in the frames.  Each element/class has a flow attribute.  Items
from different flows are picked up for different frames.  This allows
transparent integration of frame/non-frame browsers, as the flow of text
would be sane for non-frames browsers while being moved to the correct
part of the layout for frame-handling ones.
