Re: [css3-multicol] Column Headers

Running headers and footers are part of the Generated Content for
Paged Media module.  See my response in the "Breaking or Not
Breaking Block Elements" thread, about whether the Multi-Column
Layout is only for paged media.  Again, this proposal for column
headers applies not only for paged media but also screen media.  

The example in my original message is a list of what is blooming in
my garden.  At the present, my garden has been devestated by
construction activity.  Not many plants remain to bloom, which means
my example does not currently illustrate my proposal.  The page had
two columns.  The left column was headed at the top "Front";
part-way down, there was a new header "Back".  The right column was
headed "Back (continued)".  As I maintained this page, I would add
and delete plants from both columns.  I would review the results and
then move plants from one column to the other to balance their
lengths.  I create the columns through CSS; without CSS, the content
is a single column.  My garden is currently being restored, after
which the example will again illustrate my proposal.   

Referring back to the "Breaking or Not Breaking Block Elements"
thread, some entries in my example required several lines,
especially when I was listing several varieties of roses or
camellias in bloom.  I do not want a column break in the middle of
such entries, each of which is a paragraph.

Don't ask "Why is there road rage?"  Instead, ask 
"Why NOT Road Rage?" or "Why Is There No Such 
Thing as Fast Enough?"
