Being that annoying admin person here. Can we try and keep these conversations in git? The issue already exists and there is quite a bit of conversation there, I’m concerned that these points made just via email are going to get lost: https://github.com/w3c/publ-cg/issues/3

I have concerns about overriding the readers margin preference for a whole book, just so a few full-bleed images can be added. I’ll detail these on the git issue tracker.

Thanks,
Naomi

That reminds me of <meta property="rendition:spread">none</meta> which is set by default when exporting FXL from InDesign. Reading systems honour that property, but in a lot of the cases its a result of publisher ignorance and not a deliberate choice. I'd hope we could avoid that situation with margins somehow.

Yes. You summarize it very well...

Yes, I was thinking along these lines as well. In some sense, we already have the "just leave me alone" switch today with fixed layout, which only works marginally well and of course is a bit too invasive for most content. Personally I am leaning toward a margin specific property as the least invasive solution to the problem. Basically "pleas don't add any margins", although there are still questions around, say two-up mode or visible controls that need addressing. Perhaps this is analogous to a full-screen mode in a browserr; we aren't styling content, just requesting that all available space be provided to the content.
