Do you mean the page where the current retrieve-marker will retrieve the current 
marker and add the area(s). Which we could call the current page for 
So what happens if there is no marker on the current page but there was a 
marker on the previous page. This marker on the previous page generated or 
retruned the first area from the retrieved marker and therefore is the "containing 
page" in some context.

Another point, why have this statement:
"A qualifying area within a page is better than any qualifying area within a 
preceding page,"
Unless it is possible that if there is no qualifying marker on the current page then 
is possible to retrieve a marker from a preceding page.
