Saw a page just the other day where the amount of columns adapted to the resolution and textsize dynamically, so when I increased the fontsize the number of columns decreased.

Do you happen to know the url of that site? As useful as it obviously would be, there is no CSS2.1 attribute that will reflow a block of text into multiple columns. It is certainly possible to intercept window resize events and use javascript to move words of text between DIVs to balance them and add new columns as necessary, but there is no way I know of to intercept user changes of text size (Firefox & Safari) or Zoom level (Opera) so I'd be very interested in seeing how someone else did it. That could be a real boon.

Of course, the site is probably flash, which is proprietary and not well supported on the BSDs.
