Description Scott Johnson (:jwir3) 2011-09-01 15:13:02 PDT
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.

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.

Added a new version of this comparison chart, indicating which tests I've written in a patch (to be posted next).

Removing this to place on bug 629452 where it more accurately belongs.

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.
