Column-count

The number of columns an element should be divided into.

Syntax
      column-count: number | auto ;

number - The browser will attempt to flow the content into this number of columns.
auto - The browser will calculate the number of columns automatically.

The default value is auto.

Examples:
h1 { column-count: 3; }
.ss64class { column-count: 5; }

#SS64id { column-count: 2; }

When text is displayed in newspaper columns the length of each line is much shorter. This is a great aid to readability. On the internet many people will skim read large blocks of text and this can have the unfortunate effect that they miss important points buried in a long paragraph.

(CSS 3) Browser Support: IE 10, Opera. Use the equivalent -moz-column-count for Firefox and -webkit-column-count for Safari and Chrome.
