Columns for Copy

Where can I find, or what is the code to make copy flow into columns rather than stretch across the page, please?

There are several methods for creating layout in columns. One that can be done purely in HTML is by using the <table> element with its associated sub-elements. A good single-page introduction can be found at W3Schools, and there's also the HTML Tables course right here.

But more modern methods make use of CSS, and they are covered in several of the Treehouse courses, including CSS - Beyond the Basics.

Hi Steven Thanks! I've not yet looked at beyond the basics, so will do that as well as check out W3.
