Great! Your idea makes sense to me, BTW. Instead of attempting to create
columns that more likely than not will become "too narrow", just give up
and set them to 0. The drawback is of course that the user will only see
what overflows into the first half of the column gap. Oh well, I see
that this is being discussed further down the thread along with other
alternatives, so I'll join there instead if I have something useful to
add.
