How to Create Two Columns in CSS

You can create columns in CSS without having to set up any layout in HTML. The column property is intended for this purpose along with many multi-column properties for styling such as column-gap or column-width.

.two-columns {
    columns: 2;
}
columns.css

The example above will create a two column layout. The other two properties that are related to columns are the previously mentioned gap and width.

.columns {
    column-gap: 10px;  /* Sets the space between columns */
    column-width: 33%; /* Sets the width of the individual columns */
}
columns.css
