  Beautiful.  "span" doesn't take an integer.  Does that mean that there
  is no way to have different text blocks to have different numbers of
  columns?

my reading of the spec is that you just have all or none so you can't
have a three column doc and just span two columns.

What isn't clear to me from the spec is whether what I posted is
_forced_ (or even allowed) to produce the effect you want.

maybe someone "on the inside" could comment on whether given

> <fo:block span="all">block 1</fo:block>
> <fo:block span="none">[text]</fo:block>
> <fo:block span="all">block 2</fo:block>
> <fo:block span="none">[text]</fo:block>
> <fo:block span="all">block 3</fo:block>
> <fo:block span="none">[text]</fo:block>
> 

the <fo:block span="none">[text]</fo:block> bits should (or can) be
wrapped to two columns, or whether the system is allowed (or must) put
it all in the first column (leaving the second column empty).
