There is one thing I'd like to throw out here, which has to do with a short
term and a long view.

It would be a good idea if we could organize text into columns. 

Short term:
This is partly because a lot of sites are making wide pages, which means
that the text lines are very long, thus hard to read. This may fall into
the style sheet arena, but....

Long term:
I look forward to the day when we can drop the page metaphor, and have the
browser take over the whole screen, as do some interactive programs. Then
entering a site would really be entering a world.
