Does anyone know of or can tell me some standards for line-lengths ?? I'm
assuming that some people will prefer longer lines than others. I also
think it probably depends on the audience too and the purpose of the page.
Shorter lines would enhance scanning whereas longer lines would do the
opposite. The reason I ask is that we have been asked to increase the
content section of our template from 450px to be 500+px. Is 500px getting
too wide for lines of text ?? Unfortunately we don't have a liquid design,
so we have to put up with the fixed widths. Hope someone can help.

Thanks in advance.
