Hi,

are there currently any plans to add properties like 'col-break-before',
'col-break-inside' and 'col-break-after' to the next draft of the CSS3
module: Columns (a.k.a. multicol)?
Otherwise I propose to do so, because it would nicely match the
'page-break-*' properties for paged media. After all pages and columns are
similar concepts.
Once implemented people will want and try to [mis]use Multicol to create
table-like layouts: "body {column-count: 3}" Hinting breaks was essential
for that.

P.S.: That /Style/CSS/current-work#table "promised" us to see quite some
updated drafts between last September and April, but only 2 LCs (Text and
Color) happened. Time for an update.
