ISSUE-337: Simplify page-margin box layout

Simplify page-margin box layout

CSS3 Paged Media
Raised by:
Simon Sapin
Opened on:
As of this writing, the layout algorithm of page-margin boxes is much simpler and plain implemtable than in the 2006 WD. Still, it is a bit more complex that seems worth for this small feature.

There was a request to redefine this algorithm in terms of flexbox, tables, or something. I think this is not possible while keeping the "middle box is centred" requirement.

I propose closing with no change, unless there is specific feedback on the current algorithm.
