    I seem to have stumbled across a (major?) bug in Safari 5.1 CSS multi-column implementation. However, as can’t find any other reference to it on the web, I wonder if any other forum users could test to see if they can reproduce the bug?

    On my set up, the Safari 5.1 if you set min-height on a multi-column div, Safari ignores the webkit-column-count and adds in extra columns.

    For example :

    .two-col-description {
    width: 580px;
    min-height: 100px;

    gives me over 10 columns! My previous version of Safari (4 I presume) showed 2 columns correctly.

    I would appreciate it if anyone can shed any light on this, or confirm.

    Many thanks, Nye

    EDIT: Ah, found out this is a known issue on newer webkit versions. see


    This problem happened to me in 5.1 (was working fine before 5.1) and Chrome 13.0.782.107 when I had no min-height set. I Solved the issue by actually setting a value for min-height
