new-site comments - wasted space - double level of left column

Regarding the page at http://beta.w3.org/standards/webarch/

Breaking the main column down into a left column and a right column
(repeating the breakdown at the top level of the page structure) frequently
wastes a lot of horizontal space.

Notice in the attached screen shot that the over half of the horizontal
space is blank!

(Remember that not all users use full-screen windows.  Some us want to
allocate our screen space to multiple windows (perhaps a browser window
to view a web page and, say, um, maybe a mailer window write a message about
it). :-)  Try viewing at least two web pages side by side and check how your
pages work at that width. ))
