I looked this up: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-box/#the-float-property

These "start" and "end" values for "float" won't help; their meaning
depends on the writing direction, rather than :left or :right pages.

That's not the point; all my documents contain left-to-right text, where
"float: start" would mean "float: left".  Marginalia are placed on the
right for :right pages, and left for :left pages, regardless of the
writing direction.

Kind regards,

Tobias
