HTML <col> Tag

The col tag defines column characteristics for each column in a <colgroup> element. This allows you to format or classify a column or set of columns rather than each individual cell. This tag is sometimes referred to as the <col> element.

Instead of repeating styles for each cell, for each row, the <col> tag is handy for applying styles to whole columns.
