Hello everybody, my first post here.

I agree wholeheartedly with David. I have wanted to emulate newspaper 
style columns with server side generated content.

The solution I ended up with was dividing the number of items to be 
displayed by the number of columns and hoping that they all have similar 
amount of content in them so the columns don't look wierd.

All the way through I was wishing for something like Quark's chaining 
text fields.

Something like what David is suggesting would be very useful.
