Attribute for <MULTICOL ...>
GUTTER = integer

GUTTER controls the space between the columns. WIDTH controls the width of one column (all columns are the same width, and WIDTH controls that width). Here's an example of an extreme value. We also have a page of more comparisons.

<MULTICOL COLS=3 GUTTER=150>

Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her, and to wonder what was going to happen next. First, she tried to look down and make out what she was coming to, but it was too dark to see anything: then she looked at the sides of the well, and noticed that they were filled with cupboards and bookshelves: here and there she saw maps and pictures hung upon pegs. GUTTER and WIDTH interact. They both control how horizontal space is allocated, so changing one effects the other. The easiest thing to do is to only use one, and GUTTER is generally the better one to use. GUTTER controls the visual separation between the columns, no matter what the user's screen size. WIDTH, however, will result in different spaces between the columns on different screens.
