Chapter 5. Layout > Creating Simple Columns

Creating Simple Columns

Although there are a variety of ways to lay out a Web page, one of the most common is to use columns of content immediately next to each other with a small space in between called a gutter. Using columns for layout has several advantages over simply stacking content blocks on top of each other:

  • Columns are indispensable for creating a regular layout grid as described in Chapter 1.

  • Columns allow you to maximize the use of horizontal space to present content, allowing viewers to scroll down for additional material.

  • Shorter columns can make text easier to read or scan by preventing it from stretching across the screen.

  • Columns allow related content to be presented side by side.
