The columnSpan property is used to define how many columns a table cell should span. There are other alternative ways to access the cell spanning controls for a table cell via the DOM representation of tables through the TABLE, TD and TH objects.

You should specify a numeric value to indicate how many columns the table cell should span. This can also be used with the COL and COLGROUP objects.
