Css to add margin to column

I have this newspaper style column in css but I would like to add equal margin in left and right so it would center the 3 columns. right now it looks wide.
I applied it in a DIV in HTML. Should I need another DIV on top of this DIV to add the margin.
Please add the code necessary. thanks

.newspaper3
{
-moz-column-count:3; /* Firefox */
-webkit-column-count:3; /* Safari and Chrome */
column-count:3;

No need to add more DIVs on top. Just assign some margins (for example 120px):
    margin-left:120px;
    margin-right:120px;

Open in new window


So, final CSS will be:
.newspaper3{
    -moz-column-count:3; /* Firefox */
    -webkit-column-count:3; /* Safari and Chrome */
    column-count:3;
    margin-left:120px;
    margin-right:120px;
}

Open in new window


Here is demo:

That works perfect! What Id like to shift into is getting away from table structures-the td,tr,etc..
which I've previously use and instead use CSS with rows and cols that is controlled by DVs.
I'll be  creating a page with many labels and textboxes in rows and cols using css.
Im looking for examples to start to buld it.It is a registration page kinda , therefe=ore a a lot of info required with several kinds of controls in it.
Can yo provide an excellent layout to to start with?  Perhaps a few lines for rows and cols. thanks
