I was all psyched to test out the new CSS3 multi-column module (specifically column-count) today only to be sorely disappointed that none of my browsers appear to support them (as far as I can tell I have the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox and IE9.
Can someone help me out here with the options for multi-column and is their a clean scripted fallback shim for column-count?

Ah, I see now. You are right.
Works great now with the prefixes in place.
Do you know of any way to use column-count only when the word count exceeds a certain number (or the text is at least one viewport tall)?

I'm not sure how that would work and wouldn't it be a bit strange. Or did you mean fill one column and then pour into the next one? That sounds a bit like the regions proposal here.

Some pages are just not that tall, and it looks a bit strange in that case, to have multiple columns.
I've actually found a PHP script that will count the text and apply a special class to the content div when the count exceeds a pre-set limit count. This should work well in conjunction with the help you've already given me.
Thanks as always Paul.
