There was a discussion on this list and in the working group on break-inside, and there is a resolution to add separate control for column and page breaks. Stay tuned for next spec update.

Subject: [css3-multicol] missing column-break-inside

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.
