== Aliases for boxes ==

Should
* bottom-right-corner
* bottom-left-corner
* top-right-corner
* top-left-corner

have duplicates as

* right-bottom-corner
* left-bottom-corner
* right-top-corner
* right-bottom-corner

These two areas overlaps, because they are a matter of point of view.  
I really have no idea whether we should enforce concision (by  
imposing a point of view, although it comes as natural, at least for  
Westerners) or generalisation (by using two keywords for one property)


== Center and middle ==


Also, I personally consider middle as a one-dimension value while  
center is a two-dimension value

  +-----MIDDLE------+
  |                 |
  |                 |
  M                 M
  I                 I
  D     CENTER      D
  D                 D
  L                 L
  E                 E
  |                 |
  |                 |
  +-----MIDDLE------+

That may just be me... or not. I think this is important to clarify  
this (I stop counting how many time I mispelled vertical-align:center  
instead of vertical-align:middle). It is also possible that I just  
*reversed* the meanings.

  +-----CENTER------+
  |                 |
  |                 |
  C                 C
  E                 E
  N     MIDDLE      N
  T                 T
  E                 E
  R                 R
  |                 |
  |                 |
  +-----CENTER------+

Is it in the scope of this recommendation to state how UA and CSS  
should work when it comes to headers and footers? For instance, more  
often than not, I (and I presume most people) do not want  
administrative informations to be written on a page (like the address  
of the printed document: C://bla/ble/bli.html).

- Providing a way to prevent such administrative information to be  
displayed at all would often be useful: I don't want my resumé to  
have this address on it!

- How would headers and footers work with the UA headers and footers?  
Like I want page numberings at the right-bottom-corner, but the UA  
already put its own kind of page numbering.

Shall I understand this issue is moved to another draft? Which one?  
Not set up yet?


== Orientation ==


Orienting an Image on the Page <http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-css3- 
page-20061010/#orienting> doesn't appear to me as Paged Media  
specific. Could you explain why it is here?



Have a nice day,
