Hello,


We should clarify what "inconvenient location" means in section 13.2.3 of CSS 2.1 Paged Media. It states:

"Also, when boxes are positioned absolutely<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visuren.html#absolute-positioning>, they may end up in "inconvenient" locations. For example, images may be placed on the edge of the page box or 100,000 meters below the page box."

We would like to modify this to call out a specific scenario - absolutely positioned box that ends up on a different page. There is a series of pathological cases with absolute/relative position content and pagination that will have unpredictable behavior.

Change the above to:

"Also, when boxes are positioned absolutely<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visuren.html#absolute-positioning> or relatively, they may end up in "inconvenient" locations outside the current page box. For example, images may be placed on the edge of the page box or 100,000 meters below the page box."

Thanks,
Saloni
