# [texhax] minipage margins

I have a question regarding "\minipage". Is there a standard distance that
separates minipages if they are placed next to each other? Something like a
column separation distance. Also, is there a standard distance inside the
minipage reserved for a margin? I cannot seem to find out any specific
information on this.

If I wanted to place three minipages across a document, equally sized and
fill the entire area, would this work?

\begin{minipage}[c]{0.33\linewidth}
Some data
\end{minipage}
\begin{minipage}[c]{0.33\linewidth}
Some data
\end{minipage}
\begin{minipage}[c]{0.33\linewidth}
Some data
\end{minipage}

Thanks!
