Hello all,

I've been trying unsuccessfully to insert a two columns-wide picture
into a four column multicol environment (as in newspapers).
Multicols handles floats but it takes the whole width.

Does anyone know the way to insert a picture which has a width in columns that is 
different from the number of columns defined in the multicol
environment ?

Here is an example that may be completed ...


bla bla bla

and now the text carrys on with 5 columns... wrapping as well the


Are there any picture inserting packages that may be compatible with
multicol ?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions ....
