1, Do page floats break?  What happens when, e.g., a page float contains a
table that is longer than the page?

2. 'clear' allows 'top' or 'bottom', but there are times, e.g., in a
scientific journal article, when you want 'float: top', don't want
graphics, etc., to be stacked, but would prefer the second graphic to
float to the bottom of the same page rather than pushing the second
graphic to the next page and further away from its reference.  If there's
enough graphics or tables in the article, at one per page, the graphics
and tables will end up past the start of the 'References' sections, which
is usually seen as a bad thing.  How would that be done?

Regards,
