No, not in HTML 4.  What table specification are you using?

COL has an attribute 'span' in HTML 4.

The COLGROUP's 'span' is ignored when it should, according to HTML 4:
See <>:

   span = [242]number [243][CN]
          This attribute, which must be an integer > 0, specifies the number of 
columns in a
          column group. Values mean the following:
          User agents must ignore this attribute if the [248]COLGROUP element 
contains one or
          more [249]COL elements.

I believe so far that it is working as it should.  That is, according
to HTML 4.  If some table spec says something different, maybe RFC XXXX? -
well I didn't look at it.

But I didn't compile the dev.14 yet - did something get lost?
