{{Columns}} may be used to create up to ten columns across a page.

Syntax

Values for col1 and col2, i.e. the contents of the first and second columns, are expected.

{{Columns
| background =   <!-- Background (default is none) -->
| style =        <!-- Use to add extra overall CSS styling -->
| colwidth =     <!-- Width of each column (default 15.0em) -->
| gapbetween =   <!-- Gap (gutter) between each column (default 1.25em) -->
| col1width =    <!-- Use to set a custom width for col1 -->
| col1 =         <!-- (REQUIRED) First column's contents -->
| col2width =    <!-- Use to set a custom width for col2 (and so on) -->
| col2 =         <!-- (REQUIRED) Second column's contents -->
| col3width = 
| col3 = 
...
| col10width = 
| col10 = 
}}

The parameters  colstyle  and  col1style  to  col10style  may also be used to tailor all and/or individual columns' CSS styling.

dagger I.e., can the columns handle the wiki markup {| | || |- |} used to create tables? If not, templates that produce these elements (such as {{(!}}, {{!}}, {{!!}}, {{!-}}, {{!)}}) and/or HTML tags (<table>...</table>, <tr>...</tr>, etc.) will need to be used instead.
