According to the spec, column rules are just above the background, so below borders. But you probably want them to scroll with the content, not with the background (assuming 'background: scroll'). So should they then rather be above the borders in the stacking levels? Maybe above floats and below the inline content?

RESOLVED: column rules are painted in the inline content layer (as described in http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2012Jul/0546.html), but below all inline content inside the multicol
