Re: column flow (was floating images...)



Much as I like the ideas in the CSS1 frame proposals, requiring frames
for multiple columns seems unnecessarily complex. A relatively simple
columns property applicable to any block element would be very nice,
particularly when viewed with a browser in which document scrolling
could be set either vertically (as now) or horizontally (as suggested
by Michael Seaton). To give an author control of scroll type, perhaps
'HTML { columns: *}' could force horizontal scroll mode. 'HTML {
columns: *; column-width: 100%; column-gutter: 0 }' would be equivalent
to page mode, with PageDown and PageUp moving the document horizontally
by one window width.
