Both the CSS3 Color and CSS Multicol test suites are now setup in our test suite build system.

I added both to the daily builds on the server and the test harness. You can build them on you own machine by running 'tools/build-css3-color.py' and 'tools/pub-css3-multicol.pl' respectively.

In both cases I made a few tweaks to the tests to make them build system friendly (fixes to the titles and spec links).

Håkon: I also renamed your reference files and moved them out of the reftest directory (they're probably going to move again at some point when I change the way the build system handles reftests). You were also missing a reference for multicol-rule-dotted, I made one for you.

While I was there, I took a look at some of your reference files, and I hope they're just placeholders, because they're quite wrong. The ones I looked at were basically copies of the tests, using the same properties that are being tested. They need to be creating the same visual output, but doing it in a completely different manner than the test, otherwise they're pretty much guaranteed to fail in the same way the tests do...

You also still need to add assertions to the tests. And please add the spec annotation script to the next version of the spec:
<script src='http://test.csswg.org/harness/annotate.js#CSS3-MULTICOL_DEV' type='text/javascript' defer></script>
