The W3C also got a draft document to define the column break. Please refer to

We bought in some of their definition and expand them to be the container break. Currently, we got the following attribute:

  1. columnBreakBefore
  2. columnBreakAfter
  3. containerBreakBefore
  4. containerBreakAfter

each of them may be set the value of:

auto means:
Neither force nor forbid a container/column break before (after, inside) the generated box.

always means:
Always force a container/column break before (after) the generated box.

inherit means:
Inherit the setting from the parent elements
