Hello everybody,
I have a question related to painting order and stacking contexts: does
the fact that an element creates a stacking context changes the painting
order? For instance, if an element that has border creates a stacking
context and has a descendant that is floated left with a negative left
margin, will the float be painted on top or beneath the ancestor's border?

Also, in the context of CSS Regions, does anything change (regions always
create stacking contexts)? Are contents flowed in regions painted as if
they were direct descendants of the regions? Do you feel like this should
be explicitly stated?

(I'm asking the last question as I was slightly confused when trying to
determine what would be the proper paint order for a float with negative
margin floated in a region that has a border).

Thanks a lot,
Mihai
