Side-by-side columns, based on CSS float.

This has the advantage of more cross-device-accessible behaviour, as (unlike HTML <table>s) they will wrap on display windows too narrow to show them side-by-side.


  • width (not on {{col-float-end}}) optional
Defaults to 30em, as IE-based browsers don't float correctly unless width is explicitly specified
  • class optional
Embed any class identifiers wished
  • style optional
Force extra CSS styling.
Placed after the existing styles, so anything implicit can be over-ruled.

Column-generating template families

Handles wiki
 table code?dagger
Start template Break between columns End template
"Col" {{Col-begin}}
or {{Col-begin-small}}
{{Col-6}} or use {{Col-break|width=16.6%}},
i.e. with width ≈ 100%/6.
{{Col-7}} or use {{Col-break|width=14.2%}},
i.e. with width ≈ 100%/7.
{{Col-8}} or use {{Col-break|width=12.5%}},
i.e. with width = 100%/8.
For nine or even more columns, use {{Col-break|width=[W]%}},
where [W] ≈ 100 divided by the number of columns desired.
"Col-float" Green tickY {{Col-float}} {{Col-float-break}} {{Col-float-end}}
"Columns" Green tickY {{Columns}}
"Columns-start" Green tickY {{Columns-start}} {{Column}} {{Columns-end}}
"Div col" Green tickY {{Div col}}
or {{Columns-list}}
{{Div col end}}
"Multicol" {{Multicol}} {{Multicol-break}} {{Multicol-end}}

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.
