columns

The columns CSS property is a shorthand property allowing to set both the column-width and the column-count properties at the same time.

Values

<‘column-width’>
Is a <length’> value giving a hint of the optimal width of the column. The actual column width may be wider (to fill the available space), or narrower (only if the available space is smaller than the specified column width). The length must be strictly positive or the declaration is invalid.
<‘column-count”>
Is a strictly positive <integer’> describing the ideal number of columns into which the content of the element will be flowed. If the column-width is also set to a non-auto value, it merely indicates the maximum allowed number of columns.

Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<style>
.newspaper
{
columns:100px 3;
-webkit-columns:100px 3; /* Safari and Chrome */
-moz-columns:100px 3; /* Firefox */
}
</style>
</head>
<body>

<p><b>Note:</b> Internet Explorer and Firefox do not support the columns
property.</p>

<div class="newspaper">
On the Insert tab, the galleries include items that are designed to
coordinate with the overall look of your document. You can use these
galleries to insert tables, headers, footers, lists, cover pages,
and other document building blocks. When you create pictures, charts,
or diagrams, they also coordinate with your current document look.
You can easily change the formatting of selected text in the document
text by choosing a look for the selected text from the Quick Styles
gallery on the Home tab. You can also format text directly by using
the other controls on the Home tab. Most controls offer a choice of
using the look from the current theme or using a format that you
specify directly.

To change the overall look of your document, choose new Theme elements on
the Page Layout tab. To change the looks available in the Quick Style gallery,
use the Change Current Quick Style Set command. Both the Themes gallery and
the Quick Styles gallery provide reset commands so that you can always restore
the look of your document to the original contained in your current template.
