What does mean otr?

Yes, replacing background by a framedtext works fine. In fact I used that  
(and the 300 pages book compiled fine :-) but I changed to background to  
allow the code portions to split in several pages (when put in normal text  
flow). But if you say that background should be avoided in floats i'll use  
the framed typing definition for floats (that cannot split anyway).

BTW, is there other known unsafe combinations to avoid?
