By adding two new values to the float property, you make it impossible to 
specify how the element should float. I think you should add a property with 
'in-column'  and 'mid-column' (or 'between-columns') values. Then the 
developer could use the float property to specify where the item appears. 
mid-column and float=left would float in the gap to the left of the 
"current" column. "current" has an obvious meaning but should be defined in 
the specification.
