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.
Created attachment 562150 [details] Comparison of Specification Requirements to current implementation 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.
Created attachment 566868 [details] Comparison of Specification requirements to current implementation (v2) Added a new version of this comparison chart, indicating which tests I've written in a patch (to be posted next).
Created attachment 566871 [details] [diff] [review] Tests for prefixed functionality (WIP) This is a work-in-progress patch that corresponds to some tests added for the above chart.

Comment on attachment 567578 [details] [diff] [review] b684062 - Patch to deprefix column properties. (WIP) Removing this to place on bug 629452 where it more accurately belongs.
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.
