Hey all,

If a named flow contains regions for a different named flow, there were
some gaps in the visual formatting steps. I've added three paragraphs to
the editor's draft that describe how the visual formatting steps handle
nested region contexts [1]. The basic idea is that when you initially lay
out a region chain you have to recursively lay out any regions it
contains, then when you lay out the named flow content into a region chain
you again have to recursively lay out the content in the nested region
chains. The additions just make explicit where the recursions have to take
place in the visual formatting steps.

Thanks,

Alan
