The CSS3 multi=column layout module spec, as detailed here:
http://www.w3c.org/Tr/CSS3-multicol/#lsquo1

is mostly implemented in gecko. This implementation needs to be verified, tests need to be written, and the prefixes need to be removed.

This is a simple comparison of features outlined in the spec to our current implementation, along with whether or not we have a test for the given feature, and if so, where that test is located. 

This is a work in progress, so many of the columns are still being compared. If any of the items are unclear, or you think I should add/remove specific areas, please feel free to post that here.

Bug 775618 may block this one.
Are there any plans to work on this?
Have a look at the new editor's draft (8th October): http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-multicol/
In my opinion, this bug should be a meta . We should have all the other multi-column bug reports blocking this bug report.
