Who let the DHTML out? Check out the International Herald-Tribune’s design for individual stories. You can alter the font size for the story and reflow it as one or multiple columns without reloading the page. You can also page through the story without an additional request. The pages also look decent enough in Netscape 4.x. Someone at the IHT just let their designers go wild there, and I think it worked out well. The stories even have very short URLs. Whoever designed their site really knows what they’re doing, it seems.
