HI there,

https://drafts.csswg.org/css-tables-3/#repeated-headers now says:

"When rendering the document into a paged media, user agents must repeat header
rows <https://drafts.csswg.org/css-tables-3/#table-header-group> and footer
rows <https://drafts.csswg.org/css-tables-3/#table-footer-group> on each
page spanned by a table if the page is the table’s fragmentainer, if the
header/footer has avoid break-inside
<https://drafts.csswg.org/css-break-3/#propdef-break-inside> applied to it,
if the height required to do so is inferior to two quarters of the page
height (up to one quarter for header rows, and up to one quarter for footer
rows), and* if that doesn’t cause a row to be displayed twice on that page*

What is the text in bold referring to? I can't work out how displaying a
row twice on the same page would come about.
