Yes, very important. In GCPM [1], you can say:

   body { overflow: paged-x }

Likewise, to achieve vertical pagination with:

   body { overflow: paged-y }

The choice of vertical vs. horizontal is not tied to writing
direction, it seems, so I'm not sure there are good auto values for
this. The 'paged-x' and 'paged-y' keywords have been easy to use in
the demo pages found here:


Note how the newspaper article paginate horizontally (when using the
Opera Reader build).
