## fix2col – Fix miscellaneous two column mode features

OBSOLETE: do not use in new documents.

This package will do nothing in formats after 2015/01/01 as the fixes that it implements were incorporated into the fixltx2e package, which is itself obsolete as since the 2015/01/01 release these fixes are in the format itself.

Fix mark handling so that \firstmark is taken from the first column if that column has any marks at all; keep two column floats like figure* in sequence with single column floats like figure.
