Regarding the current definition of margin boxes (in that they only exist in the page corners and between page borders, but do not include the area adjacent to the orthogonal page border):

HP and Epson have expressed willingness to change their implementations in this regard. I intend to change the next release of css3-page, Section 4.2.1 from:

# max box width
#    the sum of the width of the page's left padding area, the width of the page area, and the width of the
#    page's right padding area. In other words, it is the distance between the left page border and the
#    right page border. This quantity is used when calculating dimensions of the top and bottom margin
#    boxes.
# max box height
#    the sum of the height of the page's top padding area, the height of the page area, and the height of
#    the page's bottom padding area. In other words, it is the distance between the top page border and the
#    bottom page border. This quantity is used when calculating dimensions of the left and right margin
#    boxes.

To:
| max box width
|    the sum of the page's border-left-width, padding-left, the width of the page area, padding-right, and |    border-right-width. This quantity is used when calculating dimensions of the top and bottom margin
|    boxes.
| max box height
|    the sum of the page's border-top-width, padding-top, the height of the page area, padding-bottom, and
|    border-bottom-width. This quantity is used when calculating dimensions of the left and right margin
|    boxes.

Please speak up within the next 10 days if you feel this change would be unacceptable.

Best wishes,

Melinda
