[css-multicol] z-order of column rule and column scrolling #1739
In Column Gaps and Rules is the text:
This was added due to the resolution of Feb 2013
There is a discussion in October 2013 suggesting a change to this wording, plus the addition of a clarification re: scrolling:
I don't see any resolution to this discussion, it doesn't seem to have been edited into the spec. Posting it here as an open issue.
This is one of a list of legacy issues I'm digging out of the www-style archives.
An example so we can see how this currently behaves, use Firefox to see the overflowing item painted over the rule (existing clipping interop issue means you can't see that in other browsers) https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=269061#c19
I think this is just a straightforward edit, as it seems to be what browsers are doing anyway.
Relevant section of the spec: https://www.w3.org/TR/css-multicol-1/#column-gaps-and-rules
