| We'd like to see more flexibility and control over the layout of paged
| media in CSS.  Specifically, we need multiple columns, as well as
| things like the ability to flow a story from one container on page N
| to another container on later page M.

| We assume that these issues may already be under consideration.  Would
| someone please summarize any related efforts?

XSL.  For details, see

   http://www.w3.org/Style/XSL

I believe that the XSL requirements document at

   http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-XSLReq

addresses the level of functionality you're looking for.  The first
XSL working draft is due out in July.
