The test uses 7 rules and 25 declarations. After removing the unneeded
ones, I propose this replacement:


which uses 5 rules and 15 declarations.

One mystery for me (I spent quite some time on this) is

  orphans: 1;
  widows: 1;

declarations. If I unchecked 'orphans: 1' in Opera 12.16, then the
layout changes. I have no idea what orphans and widows declarations are
doing in all the multi-col tests since media, by default, is screen and
orphans and widows apply only to page media. *_This seems like a bug to
me._* This made me put into comments my review+approval <link> for this

I replaced "x" characters with differentiable letters and numbers; if
one day browser page debuggers get improved, then it will be possible to
further investigate content area (1 browser is capable of doing that:
Hv3 TKHTML alpha 16.)

I think that a better filename for this test would have been
multicol-overflowed-content-001.xht or multicol-overflow-inside-001.xht
but this one is okay I guess.



uses 7 rules and 29 declarations.

I propose

(best is to reuse the same filename and then append -ref.)

which uses 4 rules and 7 declarations.
