CSS Multi-column Layout Module (CSS Multicol) Implementation Report

Introduction

This report was prepared to document the current implementation status of the CSS Multi-column Layout Module (CSS Multicol) specification as of 26 July 2014 and is based on current test results available in the W3C Conformance Test Harness.

Implementations

Six user agents, built from four rendering implementations, were tested across five operating systems.

Tests

The 29 May 2014 revision of the CSS Multicol test suite was used. The test suite consists of 158 tests, 6 of which test for optional behavior.

These tests are available in several host language variants:

Some tests only apply to certain language variants; the results for each tested implementation are reported for each tested language variant. Also, not all tests are applicable to each implementation; for example, a browser which implements HTML but not XHTML is not tested for XHTML.

Results

In summary, the results show that 40 of 152 tests for required behavior were passed by at least two of the tested implementations. No tests for optional behavior were passed by at least two of the tested implementations.

Results were gathered from implementation reports submitted by user agent vendors as well as the general public via the W3C Conformance Test Harness.
