Hi Christoph,

I wanted to follow up on an issue that we had in the CSS Regions
specification which came from comments you made:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2011Aug/0069.html

The specification had the following issue:

====
"Mailing list comment
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2011May/0521.html>
''content: from-flow(<ident>)'' moves an element to a named flow. Should
we allow the content to be copied to a flow instead of moved to a flow.
For example:
#quote_A { flow: "quotes"; content: contents; }
would keep ''#quote_A'' in the normal flow but also copy its content to
the ''quotes'' flow. This essentially clones the node and raises questions
regarding DOM access, CSSOM View and the computed style.
====

The CSS working group resolved last week that the first version of CSS
Regions would allow moving content to a flow for now and not allow copying
content:

Kind regards,
