Yes. This is explained in the sticky at the top.

Since I am in a good mood, I used the search function for you:
This is the post.

You need something like that (basic xhtml/CSS):

CSS:
Code:
.column {
oeb-column-number: 2;
}
xhtml:
Code:
<p class="column">This text should be in two columns. Perhaps it is too short.</p>
I don't know whether iBooks supports it at all. It is kinda known for ignoring specs.

Did you try the code I supplied?

Anyway, I believe that Blue Reader (?) for the iPad is a reader that follows the specs better.

Multi-column text will not work in many readers. Probably best to avoid it.

Bluefire Reader will work as it uses ADE and on an iPad, it would work fine.

What about a 2 cell table with a 0px border? Wouldn't that work?

No, a table would not display correctly. On your first page you would have the first column showing the beginning text, and the second column showing text from the middle of the chapter due to having to manually split the text between the cells. It would only work with text amounts less then one page long and using "page-break-inside:avoid;" in the css, and could still cause problems when switching to a large font.

Is it possible that iBooks' formating settings are overriding the columns? Does iBooks even support columns? I don't know. I don't have anything that will run iBooks to test with.
