Subject: Re: [office] Grid enhancement

Hi Florian,

thanks for providing the link. While it contains some useful information 
regarding text grids, I could not find information whether the grid 
layout mode should be a document wide property, or a page style 
property. Can you point me to the text you are referring to, or explain 
why you think a document setting is more compatible with this CSS3 spec 
than a page style setting would be?



BTW: The CSS3 Text Module was a Candidate Recommendation in 2003, but 
has been withdrawn in 2004. A rewrite is still in progress. 
Unfortunately, the specification that would nowadays include the grid 
specification (text layout) is not available publicly.
