 CSS3 module: Multi-column layout
For purposes of illustration in the figures in this document, the border and column-rule colors are changed from the specified colors to highlight where the borders and column-rule occur and, for the same reason, the padding and column-gap are shown as being colored instead of transparent to the background.
Note that the width of the column rule and column gap must also be taken into account when computing the widths of the columns.
In this case, the number of columns is determined by the column width, padding and borders.

In the context of a relational database table, a column is a set of data values of a particular simple type, one for each row of the table.
The term field is often used interchangeably with column, although many consider it more correct to use field (or field value) to refer specifically to the single item that exists at the intersection between one row and one column.
More formally, each row can be interpreted as a relvar, composed of a set of tuples, with each tuple consisting of the two items: the name of the relevant column and the value this row provides for that column.

 CSS3 Columns - MDC
People have trouble reading text if lines are too long; if it takes too long for the eyes to move from the end of the one line to the beginning of the next, they lose track of which line they were on.
The CSS3 draft specifies that the column heights must be balanced: that is, the browser automatically sets the maximum column height so that the heights of the content in each column are approximately equal.
However, in some situations it is also useful to set the maximum height of the columns explicitly, and then lay out content starting at the first column and creating as many columns as necessary, possibly overflowing to the right.
