Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the display width is fixed in terms of number of characters displayed, and is padded out to the width of your window.

<fiddles with the FF window width to see how it changes>

Ah, OK: I get it now. The "fixed number of characters displayed" rule is not bad at all, actually; keeps the reading pleasant.

My regret then would be that the very long comment threads (like in this diary) apparently cannot use more space on the right and extend up to the right hand gray bar. The "old layout" seemed to me more flexible in that regard (or was it?).

Honestly, I think that thread was harder to read in the old format. Some of the very long subthreads got squinched up to the right so the comments were hard to read. They're easier now. It seems to me.

All right: I guess we'll have to try it out, see how it feels after a while...

The much smaller indentation on comments helps a lot there.
