This template, together with {{Div col end}}, is used to make a list into columns, with the option of specifying a smaller font. It automatically breaks each column to an equal space, so you do not manually have to find the "half way" point on two columns, for instance.

This template can create multiple columns in web browsers which support one of the following CSS properties:

  • column-count (for CSS3 compliant browsers; see CSS3 module: Multi-column layout)
  • -moz-column-count (for Mozilla/Gecko based browsers such as Firefox)
  • -webkit-column-count (for WebKit based browsers such as Safari and Google Chrome)

Usage[edit]

cols = (or {{{1}}})
Specifies the number of columns. Defaults to 2 columns.
colwidth = (or {{{2}}})
Specifies the width of columns, and determines dynamically the number of columns based on screen width; more columns will be shown on wider displays. This overrides the cols= setting.
rules =  
produces vertical rules between the columns if set to yes.
small =
Specifies small font size (90%) if set to yes.
style =
Specify any custom styling.
