Hello community,


in [CSS3COL] I miss a column-break-inside property.

In "6. Column breaks", [CSS3COL] specifies: "The ‘page-break-inside’ property 
can be used to indicate that a column break should be avoided inside the 
element."

There might be occasions where a column-break is acceptable while a page-break 
is not.
Suggestion:
Name: column-break-inside
Value: auto | avoid | page
Initial: page
Applies to: block-level-elements
Inherited: no
Percentages: N/A
Media: visual
Computed value: as specified.

The semantics of the value 'page' are to inherit what's specified by the 
page-break-inside property.
The semantics of the values auto and avoid are those of page-break-inside just 
applied to columns.
