How do we know when to add a gutter to our columns?
For the purposes of this course, under what conditions should we add a gutter to our columns? Is it always needed when working with columns? Do margins count as gutters, or is padding defined as a gutter as well?

"Gutter" is a term from the printing industry that simply refers to space between columns. It's not a reference to any specific technique. They can be created by any of several methods, including padding or margins.
The use of a gutter is a design decision. They are added anytime they improve the attractiveness and/or readability of the layout.
