Tip: resize the browser window to see how text from multiple threads flows through regions.

This is a somewhat contrived example that shows how multiple arbitrary columns allow for paged content styling. Content can be interrupted and resume later with some navigation aid to point the reader where to go. In this case the interruption is a separate article of text, but in a more complex example there may be a paged display where multiple articles begin on the first page and are each continued on different pages.

Each column could have its own adornments. Here there are static “continued on” markers but with a bit of javascript there could be footnotes for markers that fall inside the column or other such callouts.

This paragraph probably falls in the third column, sandwiched between the filler article columns, but in the HTML it’s contiguous with the rest of the blue background text.

This article is filler to show that the display of text can be interrupted by other content and resume elsewhere as your design requires. This particular design is not that useful, but it does show the interruption and resumption of text within a single screen, which may make for a demo that can be quickly comprehended.
