Assuming you mean vertical text layout as for Chinese and Japanese (or
Mongolian), there'll be some old notes and mockups on

If you mean columns that you scroll through horizontally, you might take a
peek at our Windows 8 tablet app - see
https://github.com/Wikimedia/WikipediaMobile under 'WikipediaMetro' subdir.
It uses some WinJS widgets so won't run as-is in a browser, but you can see
the CSS that does the columns.
