Column property using CSS3 and HTML

In this article I am explaining how to make different columns to a paragraph as like newspaper.

Column: The column module is use for creating multi-columns texts.

Column has many properties these are give below:

1.       column-count: This property is divide into n numbers of column if we use the column-count:3;

that’s mean it will make three column and columns: will work same as column-count: columns:100px 3; means columns will make three column in 100 pixels of areas.

2.       column-gap: This property is make the difference between columns, column-gap:100px; means this line will give the 100 pixels of gap between columns.

3.       column-rule: This property will create a vertical line between the gaps of columns.

4.       column-rule-style: This propertywillmake the vertical line in different pattern such as if we use the Dotted value the vertical line will shows in dotted format.

5.       column-rule-width: This property will make the rule width.

6.       column-width: This property will make the width of columns.

 

The current Mozilla implementation uses the special -moz- prefix, while the Safari implementation uses the special -webkit- prefix. In this page I used both this prefix.

Below code will make a HTML application using CSS3 which are making a paragraph in different three columns:

 

<! DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>

<style>

.newspaper

{

/*===============================================*/

-webkit-columns:100px 3; /* Safari and Chrome */

-moz-columns:100px 3; /* Firefox */

columns:100px 3;

/*===============================================*/

-moz-column-gap:100px; /* Firefox */

-webkit-column-gap:100px; /* Safari and Chrome */

column-gap:100px;

/*===============================================*/

-moz-column-rule:3px outset #CD853F; /* Firefox */

-webkit-column-rule:3px outset #CD853F; /* Safari and Chrome */

column-rule:3px outset #CD853F;

/*===============================================*/

-moz-column-rule-style:dotted; /* Firefox */

-webkit-column-rule-style:dotted; /* Safari and Chrome */

column-rule-style:dotted;

/*===============================================*/

-moz-column-rule-width:5px; /* Firefox */

-webkit-column-rule-width:5px; /* Safari and Chrome */

column-rule-width:5px;

/*===============================================*/

-moz-column-width:20px; /* Firefox */

-webkit-column-width:20px; /* Safari and Chrome */

column-width:20px;

/*===============================================*/

color:#CD853F;

}

p

{

font-weight:bold;

font-size:2em;

color:#CD853F;

}

</style>

</head>

<body>
