You need to turn on CSS Regions ("webkit experimental features") in Chrome
to see this.

This example http://sourcefabric.github.io/BookJS/test4.html

looks like this:

I had seen the first but not the second post before. It is my understanding
that this is something that is only available in a special Opera branch of
Webkit/Blink which is not available to the public yet, correct?

Also, it is not entirely clear to me whether these features will be
available only in printed media or whether you will be able to see the
individual pages on the screen.
