I indeed saw said paragraph (it's quoted it in my initial email to the
list). I highly suspected it contained what I needed, I just didn't
know how to apply it practically.

Definitely, and I can take a stab at it now that I understand how it
works. I think what didn't register was the meaning of "contiguous
environments." I'm not really sure how to parse that.
- What is an "environment" (as in any of the b_xxx properties causes
it to be in a columns env. as well)?

- What is "contiguous" (I think I now understand this to mean
"nested.")? I guess I tend to think of contiguous as "of the same
part," which didn't immediately register as "parent/child." That said,
I think I *did* try putting the columns env property on my first level
headline, but that didn't work. I needed:

* Top
** Columns property
*** actual column 1
*** actual column 2
