+In the examples above, the width is set to 100% to fill the available space. This is typically how paper-based layouts have used column-span. If, however, the width is smaller than the available space, how should the box be positioned. (Probably on the side, based on the writing direction.) And, should content flow around it? (Probably not: it may be hard to implement and have little use.)

 <p>The 'column-span' property is extended with integer values so that elements can span several columns. If the specified integer value is equal to, or larger than the number of columns in the multicol element, the number of columns spanned will be the same as if 'column-span: all' had been specified.
