Display an array into multiple columns in a view

I have an array “$a” and the below code in my view displays all the
elements in a single column. How do I display them into 5 columns?

I am not sure if it should be done thru ruby code, or html tags or CSS.
Please suggest. thanks

    <% for w in $a %> <%= w %> <% end %>

Have a look at the Enumerable class:
http://ruby-doc.org/core/classes/Enumerable.html
each_slice in particular looks likely what you need.
