Browsers have some significant implementation differences in terms of 
how they handle paged media here.

A simple example:  Say you have two rectangular regions, one 100px tall 
and the second 200px tall.  You have a child with the following styles:

   <span style="position: absolute; top: 80px; left: 0; height: 100px;
                width: 100%; background: yellow">
   </span>

Do you get a 20px tall yellow box in the first region and an 80px tall 
yellow box in the second one?  Or just a 20px tall one in the first 
region?  Or something else?  What are the widths if the two regions have 
different widths?
