Description Dave Hyatt 2014-04-17 13:25:29 PDT
The old multi-column code could at least handle nested columns as an unsplittable unit. The new code should do the same. Right now it is dropping them completely, which will undoubtedly cause regressions in children's books in iBooks.

This is a blocker for turning the new columns on.
Comment 3 Dave Hyatt 2014-04-22 13:22:42 PDT
This is the challenging one. I wish I knew if iBooks depends on this or not.

Work in progress. Everything working now except for transparency. I need to patch bounding box for that to know how to recur.
