      The property is spelled "number-columns-spanned".

      They should. I dare suggest you to look at
      http://www.renderx.com/testcases.html - there are some tests on tables
      functionality, including one specifically designed to test cells spanning
      multiple rows/columns (table_spans.fo).

      Probably your FO formatter does not support this functionality. By the spec,
      number of cells in a row need not be equal to the number of column
      (that may be absent at all).
