Hi Ian and others,

The new working draft for generated and replaced content looks very
interesting, particularly the move-to property.

We have recently implemented page headers and footers in Prince using the
following scheme, which is remarkably similar to move-to/pending:

@page {
    @top {
        content: flow(page-header)
    }
}

div.header {
    flow: static(page-header)
}

Will there be a future Paged Media draft that considers page headers and
footers, along with the footnotes and endnotes that are very briefly
covered in the new generated content draft?

Does the appearance of the move-to property indicate that the flow
property proposed in the old frame based layout draft is never going to
happen?

Where does the @footnote declaration that is mentioned here and there in
the new draft fit in? Is it like the @top / @bottom declarations in the
Paged Media draft?

Thanks,

Michael
