Dear W3:
I would like to offer my feed back regarding 
NOTE-css-potential-19970819 (particularly the portion
regarding balanced columns) and
NOTE-CSS-potential-19981210 (which I believe was
regarding balanced columns, but I am not sure).

I would like to urge the consortium (if they have not
already) to adopt tags that support balanced columns
as part of their standard.  For site builders that
deal with large collections of short paragraphs of
text (like verses in scriptures) this would be of
tremendous value to help us both maximze the use of
our screen real estate as well as present the text in
a more visually appealing manner.  Particularly when
that text is also heavily interspersed with text that
is revealed and hidden on demand by users.  Eyeballing
the column division for thousands of pages is not the
answer.  I am casting my vote (if it counts in any
way) for balanced columns to be implemented.  I
appreciate your attention in this matter and look
forward to their implementation someday.
