Issue raised in March 2013 by @dbaron

I think almost all, if not all, of the references in http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-multicol/ to paged vs. continuous media should instead be references to fragmented vs. continuous contexts. In other words, I think essentially everything in the specification that says it applies to paged media should also apply inside of a multi-column element, inside of regions, etc.

(http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-break/#fragmentation-model defines the term "fragmentation context". I'm essentially using "in a fragmented context" to mean anything that's inside a "fragmentation context", and "in a continuous context" to mean anything that's not.)

There is a suggested text change in this response which I don't think was edited into the draft. Any further comments from @dbaron or anyone else?

The Working Group just discussed References to Paged media, and agreed to the following resolutions:

  • RESOLVED: have rachelandrew make the change to refer to fragmentation in general instead of paged media specifically
The full IRC log of that discussion <dael> Topic: References to Paged media
<dael> github: https://github.com//issues/1746
<dael> rachelandrew: There's a bunch of referenced about pages vs continuous media which should be frag vs continuous contexts. There was a suggested text change, but I don't think it was edited in.
<dael> rachelandrew: I wanted to check if it was still suitable.
<dael> florian: I suppose it imples difference in bahvior when nesting multi columns. Is this desired?
<dael> dbaron: I think some of the wording is because there's stuff we do different when you're multicola nd self doesn't fragment. You fill up columns on that page when you won't fit and then move to the next page.
<dael> florian: Right, if you're in a big multicol with tiny col...yes it's desirable.
<dael> rachelandrew: Add the text in the 2013 email?
<dael> dbaron: I suspect fantasai may have better wording since stuff has changed in the last 5 years.
<dael> rachelandrew: If we agree this is disirable I can draft some text and we can bikeshed.
<TabAtkins> Ahhh, I understand my issue now.
<dael> astearns: We can resolve to have you make the change to refer to fragmentation in general instead of paged media specifically.
<dael> rachelandrew: Cool.
<dael> astearns: Sound good Rossen ?
<TabAtkins> I was just misreading it. It's a feature request (with details), not a bug report.
<dael> Rossen: Yes.
<dael> Rossen: Obj?
<fantasai> TabAtkins, I think that should be tagged against L2 then :)
<dael> RESOLVED: have rachelandrew make the change to refer to fragmentation in general instead of paged media specifically
