Figure H-4. A three-column <multicol> document
segment (Netscape 4 only)
You can see in Figure H-4 how Netscape 4 has balanced the columns to
approximately equal lengths. You also can see how several lines within
the columns appear shorter because longer words were wrapped to the
next line of text. These overly ragged right margins within the columns
are unavoidable and serve to emphasize that you shouldn't create more
than four or five columns in a flow. Our example is still barely readable if
displayed as five columns; it breaks down completely and even induces
rendering errors if cols is set to 7, as shown in Figure H-5 .
