But the main article isn't finished on page three; the word "phar-"
must continue on some (imaginary) page 4?

In any case, I'd like to see code/markup for a regions-based approach.

I read the figure to mean:

  Start both flows on page 1. 
  Main flow should go into a two-column layout from page 2
  Side flow should continue on page 3.

Three seems like an arbitrary number, though.
