           Summary: Page column rule
           Product: XSLFO

          Priority: P2

Can we add semantics for a column gap rule to the new spec?

FYI, There are a couple work arounds like using a background image and also
this method described on the XEP support list:
http://services.renderx.com/lists/xep-support/2202.html

CSS3 Multi-Column has the following defined, so it would be convenient to use
the same attribute names. (http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-multicol/)
  4. Column gaps and rules
    * 4.1. ‘column-gap’
    * 4.2. ‘column-rule-color’
    * 4.3. ‘column-rule-style’
    * 4.4. ‘column-rule-width’
    * 4.5. ‘column-rule’ 

If we wanted to be fancier, maybe we could consider the ability to use an
image.  Similar to border-image
(http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-css3-border-20021107/#the-border-image)

Thanks for considering this enhancement.  Please let me know if there is
anything I can do to help.

Sincerely,
John Cavalieri
