Creating gutter space between columns

Hello I am trying to make 3 column layout but I can't create the gutter space between each column. When I give margin value to .col they all become one column layout. (.col is inside of .secondary-content and each columns are given class name of .first-column col, .second-column col, .third-column col)

.secondary-content {


.col { width:33%; float:left; }

Here is your magic:

.col {
  width: 33%;
  float: left;

/* Centers your text inside the tables. Unless you want something harder you need to adjust the table padding. (not margin) */

/* Collapse squeezes all the tables together so you see 1 border line between the tables. */

/* Add border to all tables except the last table. */
table:not(:last-child) {
  border-right:1px solid #666;
