Something bugs me with the examples, all the examples in the multi-column
model spec. The descenders of last lines of each and all columns of
multi-column elements are overlapping into the padding area of the
multi-column div and this shouldn't be. (In other words, the p,j,y,q,g
glyphs overlap the bottom blue lines)

§ 2. The multi-column model, Example 8

I adapted that example and created:

(I converted pixels into em.)
to verify this.

So far, I only checked such test with Opera 12.15 under Linux where
"DejaVu Serif" is my default font. I'll try under Windows XP and "Times
New Roman".

Then I also noticed that there is a greater gap at the top (at the top of
first line box of each column) too which should not be there.


One thing I wish all the specs would do is to create real examples with
real code which we could try in browsers. Even have links to webpages of
individual examples. I've done this before (mostly for CSS 2.1) and often
realized that the provided code of examples in the specs was not precise
and sometimes not realistical or not even close.
