Exegesis 7: Overflow Fields
Message ID:
In "And now at length they overflow their banks." its not clear
how an overflow field gets tied to its initial non-overflow field.
In the recipe example given, how does it know to go with the
$method field instead of the $prep_time field? Is it basing off
of matching the horizontal extent of the initial field? If so,
are error messages generated if there is overlap?
