    FTColumnflow is a polyfill that fixes the inadequacies of CSS column layouts. It is developed by FT Labs, part of the Financial Times. It is extensively used in the FT Web App, where it allows us to publish articles with complex newspaper/magazine style layouts, including features such as:
    _Configurable column widths, gutters and margins
    _Fixed-position elements
    _Elements spanning columns
    _Keep-with-next to avoid headings at the bottom of a column
    _No-wrap class to avoid splitting elements across columns
    _Grouping of columns into pages
    _Horizontal or vertical alignment of pages
    _Standardised line height to align text baseline to a grid
    _Rapid reflow as required by events such as device orientation or font-size change
