In multi-column layouts, the column-rule CSS property specifies a straight line, or "rule", to be drawn between each column. It is a convenient shorthand to avoid setting each of the individual column-rule-* properties separately : column-rule-width, column-rule-style and column-rule-color.

Formal syntax: <'column-rule-width'> || <'column-rule-style'> || <'column-rule-color'>
column-rule: dotted;
column-rule: solid blue;
column-rule: solid 8px;
column-rule: thick inset blue;


Accepts one, two or three values in any order: 

Is a <length> or one of the three keywords, thin, medium or thick. See border-width for details.
See border-style for possible values and details.
Is a <color> value.


p.foo { column-rule: dotted; }          /* same as "medium dotted currentColor" */
p.bar { column-rule: solid blue; }      /* same as "medium solid blue" */
p.baz { column-rule: solid 8px; }       /* same as "8px solid currentColor" */
p.abc { column-rule: thick inset blue; }
