Is it possible to display content in multi-columns with HtmlTextBlock for Windows 8 apps?

Sorry if it was asked before. Asking solely for discussion purpose.

I know I can achieve this by using RichTextColumns while using RichTextBlock which I think is a totally different topic.

Is it possible to display multi-column content with MyToolkit's HtmlTextBlock? If not, is it a planned feature?

Its currently not possible and not planned. Mailny because i dont know how to do it. The control uses an itemspresenter with a scrollviewer to display the elements. It is possible to use a wrappenel instead of a stackpanel to have multiple columns. However, the problem is that bigger blocks of text will not break in the middle but only between the blocks... Maybe you have an idea?

Actually, I don't know either. Maybe in the future if I come across a way to do it, I'll let you know. I think multi-column contents will be a cool addition to the HtmlTextBlock control.
