Usage

Each subclass determines the number of columns of the grid to be used based on the type of a device. Consider the following HTML snippet.

<div class = "w3-row">
   <div class = "w3-col s2 m4 l3">
      <p>This text will use 2 columns on a small screen, 4 on a medium screen, and 3 on a large screen.</p>
   </div>
</div>

Default columns to be used are 12 on a device if a sub-class is not mentioned in the class attribute of an HTML element.
