christin-goetz has just created a new issue for 

== [css-page | css-box model] margin-inside / margin-outside ==

I’m working in book industry and my daily business is to set up CSS 
for paged media. I have come across some shortcomings with the CSS 
paged media specs recently and want to let you know about this:

To control the "outer" margin for an element on a page (depending on 
whether the element is rendered on a right or left page), it would be 
great if the "margin" property could be extended by two new properties
 "margin-inside" and "margin-outside".

Prince XML already implemented this with the following properties:
* http://www.princexml.com/doc/properties/margin-inside/
* http://www.princexml.com/doc/properties/margin-outside/

An implementation of such property would make it easier to set up a 
paged media CSS for different rendering engines. At the moment you 
need different CSS settings for each render engine to achieve the 
described formatting.

Kind regards,
