[css3-page] LCWD issue 25 -- [25] Section 3.6


It seems to me that using Media Queries [1] provides the best way to set one
set of rules for duplex printer and another for simplex devices.  As you
say, I think it is outside the scope of this doc.

Your issue, shown below, has been assigned the number 25.
> With :left and :right always being used even when printing 
> single-sided, how is an author supposed to be able to specify that he 
> wants one set of rules used when printing single-sided and a different 
> set of rules when printing double-sided?  The easiest solution seems 
> to be to specify two new media types for single-sided and double-sided 
> paged printing (and possibly a third for printing using a continuous 
> non-paged roll, altho that could be said to be outside the scope of 
> this module).

A further response will be forthcoming. Please address any replys to
www-style@w3.org with [css3-page] in the subject line.
