Hello,

http://test.csswg.org/source/contributors/opera/submitted/multicol/multicol-collapsing-001.xht

In the test, column-gap is not declared and the spec grants UAs latitude
on how wide the column-gap can be. Now, after checking the test and the
reftest, it's clear that the column-gap should be set to 1em and should
not be 0em: 8em (width) - 2em (column-gaps) is dividable by 3
(column-count). The yellow background color shines through the 2
column-gaps.

Proposed replacement:

The reftest is not best, not reliable (although it looks correct to me).
I can see different renderings among browsers. The reftest should be
using another feature (not a multi-column) to render the reference file.

Proposed replacement:

(filename has "-001" appended)
