mac-level bridges and internet addresses

Here's a real rookie question:

I know (or at least am laboring under the assumption) that all hosts
(connections) on a given physical network must (should?) use the same
network number in their internet address. What about MAC-level bridges
(Lan Bridge 100's, Vitalink Translans, and the like)? Are all ethernet
segments connected by these devices on a single net (for purposes of
internet addressing), or can each segment use a different network
(or subnet) number?

                                                Thanks in advance,
