Quickish one if people have the time.

I will be editing the first Computing Commission
newsletter - which will only be distributed on-line
as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file.  (very cheap/costless)

Is there an article somewhere or guidelines stating
what is a good format for an on-line newsletter - but
would look OK if printed out as well.

Single column/double column.  Type font and size - 
average words per line.

I quite like the IUCr CPD newsletter format (I helped
design it) - but this is mainly a printed newsletter where
minimizing number of pages is important and I am not 
sure this (double column)is good for readability on
a computer screen.

Cheers,

Lachlan.
