@annika Ironically I'd consider Heer's own page to have a bit of web bullshit, albeit minor: squeezing all the text into one little column so I have to scroll unnecessarily.

The first pic shows what it looks like with stylesheets turned on. The second with stylesheets off. Note that in the latter the text uses the full width of my screen, which is not what he intended in the stylesheet version. social.coop/media/6lISseFdzFOi social.coop/media/kvnQd_7_X2Yc

@ND3JR That's cool if that's your preference, but most people find shorter lines more comfortable to read baymard.com/blog/line-length-r


@annika I think it's a stretch to say "most people" when none of the sources in that article you linked to actually cite any studies done and just go with what seem to be conventions rather than actual research saying this.
