You can't use region styling on bare text that you've moved from its
original element into the named flow, but you can style the text using the
original element.

Given this:

<p class="source">some text</p>

.source { flow-into: named-flow content; }
#some-box { flow-from: named-flow; }

The only way you can style "some text" is by using a .source or p
selector. The original element is still the container as far as CSS is
concerned.

Thanks,

Alan
