I've written a piece on how CSS can reproduce functionality currently
used in native apps. 

  http://alistapart.com/blog/post/ten-css-one-liners-to-replace-native-apps

The sample code is from CSS Figures and CSS Multicol, with a dash of
CSS Overflow:

  http://figures.spec.whatwg.org/
  http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-multicol/
  http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-overflow-3/#overflow-properties

Pages and columns have been basic building blocks in typography since
the Romans started cutting scrolls into pages. This is not why
browsers should support them. We should do so because they help us
make better, more beautiful, user experiences on mobile devices.

Cheers,
