This template is for use in a list in the body of an article, rather than in a navigation template like Template:Navbox. Based on Template:Reflist, but different in that the text to be displayed is manually created rather than a list of references.
The width of each column may be specified using |colwidth= and a value in ems.
Text (usually a list)
Here, width specifies the width of the columns, and determines dynamically the number of columns based on screen width; more columns will be shown on wider displays.
If |colwidth= is not specified, the default width of 30em will be used.
This template uses CSS3 multiple-column layout, which is not supported by all Webbrowsers.
The template, in fact, works with everything since all it does is wrap the text provided around a block to be divided into columns by CSS. Do not stop at wikitext lists – more advanced lists generated by the HTML templates will work too!
Use of the no-longer-supported parameter |cols=, or use of the first unnamed parameter (aka |1=) along with |2= or a second unnamed parameter for the template's content, will generate a red error message. To fix this error, use |colwidth= instead of attempting to specify the number of columns.
The presence of an equals sign within the template's content can also cause display problems and red error messages. To fix this problem, add |1= in front of the template's content.
