How do I print output similar to <apex:detail />

Hello,


I want to write a Visualforce page, and write out the data explicitly rather than use <apex:detail />.

 

The problem I'm having is I can't seem to find an example of defining # columns to print out the data.

 

In the Pages Developer Guide, I see examples of <apex:pageBlockTable>, which just loops printing data form a related list;  I see an example of <apex:dataTable>, but don't see how to setup the # of columns.

 

Can someone tell me out to get started.  For example, if I wanted to print out Contact details similar to how <apex:detail /> woudl output it, can you give me the first few lines of the Visualforce code?

 

Thanks,


AT
