Here's a test page for margin boxes along with output from three formatters:

  http://people.opera.com/howcome/2013/tests/css3-page/page-margins.html
  http://people.opera.com/howcome/2013/tests/css3-page/antennahouse.pdf
  http://people.opera.com/howcome/2013/tests/css3-page/prince.pdf
  http://people.opera.com/howcome/2013/tests/css3-page/weasyprint.pdf

In this test, Antennahouse and Prince are interoperable. Weasyprint almost so.
(Simon may have fixed it by now :)

For the books I've produced, I've only used one of the formatters
(Prince (Disclosure: I'm on the board of YesLogic, the company that
makes Prince (being on the board is a good way of getting attention for
your favorite bugs))).
