add support for CSS3 multi-columns
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (Win98; U) BuildID: 2001050515 Colums properties like <div style="columns: 2; column-gap: 50px; column-rule: 1px solid black"> are ingnored. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Enter <div style="columns: 2; column-gap: 50px; column-rule: 1px solid black">...</div> 2. 3. Actual Results: No columns. Expected Results: 2 columns with column-rule.
I believe multiple columns are CSS3, not CSS2.
columns are css3. setting status to new, but unless this blocks internal mozilla code this will probably not be in for a bit... Full support for CSS1/CSS2 is more important. Helpwanted.
Columns could be CSS 3 if CSS 3 was already a specification... For the moment, multi-columns in CSS are only a Working Draft , a work in progress. Tagging [RFE] and pushing to Future. Cc:ing Marc Attinasi for his information.
Severity: normal → enhancement
Summary: CSS3: columns property is not rendered → [RFE] add support for CSS 3 multi-columns
Target Milestone: --- → Future
Maybe it should be checked if multi-columns can cause changes in the concepts of the rendering engine - if yes, preparations should be made.
Assigning pierre's remaining Style System-related bugs to myself.

I know this is probably very far from the list of priorities, but I'm voting for this one. My rationale: <li>the amazing number of ugly hacks people have been using to emulate this effect <li>and the fact that an experimental implementation would help this particular module of css3 move forward - it seems to be quite stalled.
Why 'helpwanted'? The draft isn't even correct yet. Look for example to chapter 10 (<http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-multicol/#floating>).
