How do I use them?

First you need to open up a container to put your individual columns in, using the columns class on a section, div or similar tag, like below:

<div class="columns">

Then you add your individual columns inside this. Whatever columns you put there must add up to 100%:

<section class="columns">
 <div class="col-40">Content in a 40% width column</div>
 <div class="col-60">Content in a 60% width column</div>

In the above example, we have col-40 and col-60.

<section class="columns">
 <div class="col-20">Content in a 20% width column</div>
 <div class="col-30">Content in a 30% width column</div>
 <div class="col-50">Content in a 50% width column</div>

In this example, we have col-20 and col-30 and col-50.
