Using CSS to Make Multi-column Layout FAQ: CSS Two Columns

There are three ways to create columns in HTML:

  • Frames. Although this was popular in 1997-98, this is rarely done anymore.
  • Tables. Practically all large sites are done this way.
  • With CSS. It’s possible to do multi-column layout entirely with CSS. No tables at all.
