Thanks, I'll read more into fragmentation.

You're right, it is far from being easy to comprehend. Although from the parts of CSS2 I read while studying CSS layout I found CSS3 to be quite a bit clearer.

I think making clearly defining all terms would help a great deal for that. The Glossary in css-display-3 is a first attempt at this, although it's still kind of a copy-paste from the relevant CSS2 sections and contains all of these circular definitions.

I'd be happy to improve the wording myself if I understood the whole thing but I don't. Until then, the point of my post can be seen as a readers feedback.
