+  <p>A column that is moved from its natural position is called a region in
+   this specification. Columns can be moved using floating or absolute
+   positioning.
 
   <div class=example> <img alt="sample rendering" src=regions.png>
+   <p>In this example, the multicol layout is changed so that the image
+    (which appears first in the markup) spans two columns and is floated to
+    the top, thereby escaping its natural column. The first column, which
+    holds the start of the textual content is also floated to the top,
+    spanning two columns, and therefore ends up just under the image. Du to
+    the &lsquo;<code class=css>visibility: collapse</code>&rsquo; setting on
+    the first column, the second column will move into its space.
