I think a fair amount of the new properties and values in CSS3-GCPM 
could be moved to CSS3-Content, as they seem applicable outside of paged 
media (e.g. a lot of the float stuff, hyphenation, counter styles). I 
brought up float: footnote in particular since its present definition 
does not make sense outside of paged media yet nothing about it prevents 
it from being specified legally in non-paged media, AFAICT.

Beware of bugs in the above code; I have only proved it correct, not tried it. -- Donald E. Knuth
