Chapter 5. Layout > Creating Balanced Columns

Creating Balanced Columns

Take a look at any newspaper, and you will notice that the news is presented in columns, usually three or more on a page. Web designers often follow this basic layout style, placing content into distinct columns to help organize it. Originally, this layout was easily achieved using HTML tables, and then CSS came along, and (for a long time) absolutely nothing changed.

This was not because you couldn’t easily create columns using CSS. CSS columns are created by floating layers next to each other, as shown in the previous section.
