Take a look at this file. It has a div floated left with six lines of text
in a 2-column layout containing eight lines of text


In WebKit the columns are balanced by splitting the float in two. In Gecko
and Opera the float remains intact and the columns are not balanced. Should
I expect more interop here, or is this a vague area that css3-pagination is
meant to resolve?

I am strongly in favor of splitting the float in an instance like this.
