The column-width CSS property suggests an optimal column width. The is the maximum width a column will become before adding another column. For instance, a 300px column width a gap of 0px would be a single column at 599px, but at 600px it would be split into 2 columns. This allows us to achieve scalable designs that fit different screen sizes. Especially in presence of the column-count CSS property which has precedence, to set an exact column width, all length values must be specified. In horizontal text these are width, , column-gap, and column-rule-width.
