Compass: @include column-span fails to span h2, h3

Hi,

I am following along in the Compass Basics class and I am finding that @include column-span(all) fails to span the h2 and h3 headers across the three columns.

Has anyone else encountered this?

Thanks!

What is the exact issue you are getting. Your code seems to be correct from what you provided above. As you can see it matches mines and mines work. Could the error be generating from a different part of your code ?

// LAYOUT STYLES

.main-header {
  @include clearfix; 
}
.main-logo {
  @media (min-width: $breakpoint) {
    @include float-left;
  }
}
.main-nav {
  @media (min-width: $breakpoint) {
    @include float-right;
    @include horizontal-list(10px, left);
  }
}

// sticky footer 

@include sticky-footer(100px, ".container", ".root-footer", ".main-footer"); 

// multi-column layout 

.main-content {
    @media (min-width: $breakpoint) {
        @include column-count(3);
        @include column-gap(3em);
        @include column-rule(1px, solid, #ccc); 
        h2, h3{
            @include column-span(all); 
        }
    }
}

Also you should use the varaible $breakpoint thorughout your code too.
