    Hi
    is there anybody who has experienced working with multi column properties (column-count, column-width, column-gap or column-rule) ? I tried to use this model : http://www.csscripting.com/wiki/inde...3_Multi_Column and have great trouble with it.
    I tried to use it with with following div element:

    #column_text
    {
    column-width: 382px;
    column-count: 3;
    column-gap: 2px;
    column-rule: 1px solid #63FFEF;
    position:relative;
    width: auto;
    height:400px;
    margin:2px;
    padding:10px;
    background-color:#fff;
    border:thin solid #F3FF71;
    }

    without the 4 column-properties all works well,
    with them my text is split in the correct amount of columns but background-colour becomes transparent and border none.
    Is there a way to make these properties work together?

    Also the id would no longer be called "column_text" but something weird like #kslamo or #idrppw (even if the column-properties are put in /* */ ). I don't know if this is any malfunction or if it's meant to be like this (i'm not able to understand all of the javaScript that comes with this model ..)

    thanks for any help to understand this

    I know, you hear this all the time ... but what if someone
    doesn't have Javascripting, or turns it off? I don't think
    anyone should turn off scripting, but in some cases they
    do ... in some cases it's because of some accessibility software
    that is running.

    4 columns does become a bit narrow with an 800 pixel browser.

    I'll think about that later, first I would like to get this thing working..
    but if you have some examples for such accessibility software that needs JavaScript to be turned of ... could be helpful

    4 columns should not become narrow but leave the screen at the right (and being scrolled) while keeping their fixed width.

    has anyone experience with these css-columns?

    Thinking about it later isn't usually the best option... why create a design with an inherent flaw without a solution? It's always best to have at least a plan for making it fully functional before you go through all the trouble of 'getting it working'.

    ok, I'll write a simple layout for the few people who have their javaScript disabled.

    could we please talk now about css and multi column properties ? I would like to examine this method.
    so if anyone has experience with it I would be thankful if you shared it.
