Thank you very much for your response,
I understood and succeeded with multi-column body region, but it didn't fit my needs. In fact I need multi column in block containers or tables, because i need two columns on the left and a third one completly independant in the right in a page and i need a two columns area and a third columns area in the same page.
Do you have simple examples or urls to manage multi columns in block-containers or tables ?
Thank you for your help

You can create a multi-column body region by specifying the column-count property: http://www.w3.org/TR/xsl/slice6.html#fo_region-body
You can have only one multi-column-area. There is a possibility to put a span="all" for blocks which you want to have to span all columns (mainly intended for headlines). This would give you a layout as in a multi-column book. If you want to have a complex newspaper-like layout, with a grid with various possibly multi-column articles, you have to do it manually, either by using a blind table for the grid, or by using block-containers on absolute positions.
