As used on the International Herald tribune site:


At least they give the user the option of reading it as one long
column or multiple columns.

Sometimes Long line lengths are harder to read and their solution
requires no scrolling.

IMHO its still tyring to reproduce print on the web, but its the best
example ive seen yet.
