Are people so lazy they can't scroll both ways?  That keeps it compact, enables 
you to put short articles in corners, make it a newspaper blog.  I thought 
humans could think horizontally and vertically.  Chinese newspapers certainly 
have short and long articles, advertising, and such.

I guess I am confused, I'm thinking of a newspaper, with larger headings, 
preferably fingerspelled so one is absolutely certain of the title, and then 
everything in clusters of columns.

True, the articles are in columns. The thing that has been confusing some people  
is that the titles and everything on the sides with the current design are 
written horizontally. So I was hoping to help lessen the confusion by making 
everything vertical. I would still be able to lay out multiple items with this 
new idea. The only difference would be that you would scroll right rather than 
down since everything would be vertical. 

Your frames work fine with  me.

So now I am confused myself. :-) You like the way that it is right now without 
the change better? Or do you like it the way that I was showing in my idea?
