Hi all,

Consider the following layout: two regions and a div flowed into them. The
div has no content except for a float, which is large enough to not fit
inside the first region. Since the div's size is not altered by it's
floating child, the div fits perfectly inside the first region. Now, the
problem is: since the float's parent is only flowed inside the first
region, what should happen to the portion of the float that does not fit
the first region? Should it be fragmented into the second region or should
it respect it's parent's region range and overflow the first region?
