Someone's document (I was helping with a page-numbering issue) has the left
margin in Page Setup set to 2.77 inches. Text boxes and tables, however,
appear in that 2.77-inch space, so a page looks like a two-column layout.
What is this called, and how is it even possible? I thought a margin was
cast in stone, as it were.
