CSS column-rule-style Property Definition and Usage
When dividing an element into multiple columns using CSS `column-count` property, we might want to set a line between each of these columns so that people can distinguish each column easily.
Now, in order to create that line, we use the CSS `column-rule-style`.
Basically, this property not just creates a line, but also allows us to style this line as well.
By default, that line is just a solid pipe but there are other values: line “dashed”, “dotted” etc. that we can apply and change the default style of the line.
