I wanted to give some input on a issue I don't see covered in the draft W3 spec on multiple columns: Paragraph margins at bottom of the column.

When a paragraph break occurs at the bottom of a column, the spec calls for the user agent to apply the paragraph's standard bottom margin. Unfortunately, this adds extra redundant space at the bottom of the column. The problem is especially evident when the columns are in a block with a margin, such with the hymn lyrics on our site (for examples of our lyrics pages, click one of the links on http://www.hymntime.com/tch/ttl/ttl-a.htm).

Believe this problem this could be eliminated by creating a something like border-collapse property for columns (as tables currently have). I hope it's not too late for this to make it way into the CSS3 spec.
