This report was prepared to document the current implementation status of the CSS Multi-column Layout Module (CSS Multicol) specification as of 11 March 2014 and is based on current test results available in the W3C Conformance Test Harness.
Nine user agents, built from four rendering implementations, were tested across four operating systems.
The 20 July 2013 revision of the CSS Multicol test suite was used. The test suite consists of 129 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.
In summary, the results show that 120 of 123 tests for required behavior were passed by at least two of the tested implementations. In addition, 4 of 6 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.
