The {{col-begin}}, {{col-break}} and {{col-end}} templates control columns of text on a page:

  • {{col-begin}}: starts a table (followed by {{col-break}} for 1st column)
  • {{col-break}}: triggers the start of each column
  • {{col-end}}: ends the multi-column table.

The widths of columns can be specified by using various additional codes. See below for examples.


{{col-begin|width=70%}}: start table with width.
{{col-break|width=66%}}: start column-1 as 66% wide.
This is text in col-1.
{{col-break|width=33%}}: start column-2 as 33% wide.
Text column-2.

The table will have two columns, with column 1 twice (2×) the width of column 2.

A border of 2px (1px width on each side) corresponds to a 5%. Therefore, with a 2px border—for example, as in Wikipedia:Tutorial/Wrap-up and more info—the width needs to be 95% for the table to fit within the screen. Since it's possible that some tables might not have a border, correction on the individual page could be made after substitution. Another way to create a two column table is like this:

Left column
Right column

dagger i.e. can the columns handle the wiki markup {| | || |- |} used to create tables? If not, templates that produce these elements (such as {{(!}}, {{!}}, {{!!}}, {{!-}}, {{!)}}) and/or HTML tags (<table>...</table>, <tr>...</tr>, etc) will need to be used instead.
