    I coded the Margin import for WP documents (good to hear it seems to be
    working :), and yes, every time a margin is changed, a new set of
    <section></section> tags is needed. Inserting such a set does NOT cause
    a new page to be inserted per se, but other exporters might wrongly do
    that. The WP exporter does not currently support the exportation of
    margins yet.
