You don't happen to be working on an index, do you? Run-in style is one of the different index format styles. You should be able to find some details on this in the Chicago Manual of Style.

But a single column is rare for print indexes, so I don't know...

OK, I've finally found instructions that drive me crazy. I'm formatting a paper for publication and the instructions to authors states:

"All text should be formatted in a run-in style (do not use columns)."

What do they want?
