This template is used to split content on pages up into columns, such as in a Table of Contents page.

Usage[edit]

{{col
|Number of columns - 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6
|begin, end, noclear (optional)
|Number of columns to span (optional)
}}

begin and end are only used at the beginning or ending of the set of columns (end will add a {{-}} after the closing div while noclear will not).

To have content span across multiple columns, use another field with the number of columns. This number must be no greater than the total number of columns, and should go after begin if being used on the first column.

Multiple {{col}} templates can also be nested inside of each other to split individual columns into more than one column. For example, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past/Table of Contents.
