I think we want 'page area' here rather than 'page box', no?

If an element is floated to the top of the next page ('float: top next page;'), is it centered or aligned with the start edge?  I assume text flows along its side... Both sides if it's centered?  I guess the usual margin-collapsing rules apply wrt adjacent boxes?

Best wishes,

Melinda
