    Given the most used browser barely supports CSS2, and CSS3 is only a working
    draft, it'll probably be a long time before they do.

    Even then, it will be a very bad thing to use for screen media. Instead of
    being able to read downward, people would have to read down, then scroll up
    to the top, then read down, then scroll up to the top, ....

    There is experimental support for some parts of CSS 3 in IE/win, Gecko,
    Opera and KHTML (Konqueror, Safari) but CSS 3 is a very big draft spec and
    there is very little overlap between the small parts supported in
    different browsers.

    Multi-column layouts are not supported in any of the above rendering
    engines though. Whatsmore, as Sam said, multicolumn layouts introduce some
    usability problems when used on screen. (It does look good on paper
    though, and perhaps some other media.)
