Description Mihai Balan 2014-02-05 17:31:17 UTC
Specs like CSS Multicol[1], CSS Regions[2] or CSS Overflow[3] introduce the fragmentation of an element across a possibly arbitrary number of boxes.

The fullscreen spec should define how a fragmented element should be displayed when made fullscreen since this is not directly apparent from the current state of the spec (especially when considering the Regions or Overflow cases).

How have you dealt with the CSSOM cases where we have numerous assumptions about one layout box being one element? The same way as in printing? First layout box would make the most sense to me given you can't do a union meaningfully here.

Just use first layout box here.
