Håkon,

1- What should happen when column-gaps are excessively wide?

Let's say:

div
{
column-count: 3;
column-gap: 200px;
width: 300px;
}

(11)  if (column-width = auto) and (column-count != auto) then
(12)    N := column-count;
(13)    W := max(0, (available-width - ((N - 1) * column-gap)) / N);

So, used column-count should be 3 and used column-width should be 0
according to the pseudo-algorithm. But I still can not figure out how the
multi-column element will look like if "Column gaps take up space. That
is, column gaps will push apart content in adjacent columns (within the
same multicol element)."

2-
"
The <border-style> values are defined in [CSS21] and the values are
interpreted as in the the collapsing border model.
"
§ 4.3. ‘column-rule-style’

"in the the collapsing"
should be instead
"in the collapsing"
