<span class="block ...">3</span>
</div>

# Grid

<div class="grid gap-4 grid-cols-3">

</span>
<span class="inline-grid grid-cols-3 gap-x-4">

# Contents

Use contents to create a “phantom” container whose children act like direct children of the parent…

<div class="flex ...">
<div class="flex-1 ...">1</div>
<div class="contents">
<div class="flex-1 ...">2</div>
<div class="flex-1 ...">3</div>
</div>
<div class="flex-1 ...">4</div>
</div>

# Table

Use the .table, .table-row, .table-cell, .table-caption, .table-column, .table-column-group, .table-header-group, table-row-group, and .table-footer-group utilities to create elements that behave like their respective table elements.

A cell with more content
Cell 2
Cell 3
Cell 4
A cell with more content
Cell 6
<div class="table w-full ...">
<div class="table-row-group">
<div class="table-row">
<div class="table-cell ...">A cell with more content</div>
<div class="table-cell ...">Cell 2</div>
<div class="table-cell ...">Cell 3</div>
</div>
<div class="table-row">
<div class="table-cell ...">Cell 4</div>
<div class="table-cell ...">A cell with more content</div>
<div class="table-cell ...">Cell 6</div>
</div>
</div>
</div>

# Hidden

Use .hidden to set an element to display: none and remove it from the page layout (compare with .invisible from the visibility documentation).

<div class="flex ...">
<div class="hidden ...">1</div>
<div>2</div>
<div>3</div>
</div>

# Responsive

To control the display property of an element at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing display utility class. For example, use md:inline-flex to apply the inline-flex utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

<div class="flex md:inline-flex ...">
<!-- ... -->
</div>
