Column-rule-width

The width of the rule between columns.

Syntax
      column-rule-width: thin | medium | thick | length ;

thin - Width less than the default.
medium - Default. A medium width border.
thick - Width greater than the default.
length - A floating-point number followed by an absolute or relative units designator (px, em, pt...)

The exact thickness of the column rule when using the medium, thin, or thick value is user agent dependent.

Examples:
h1 { column-rule-width: 2em; }
.ss64class { column-rule-width: 1px; }

#SS64id { column-rule-width: medium; }

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.
