One of the hardest things about web page design is to recognize that
"screenful" doesn't really have any meaning for public access HTML
pages. People viewing the page could be operating a variety of
different platforms, screen resolutions, and browser window sizes. A
page that just fills the screen at 640 X 480 is woefully sparse at
1024 X 768, and that doesn't even take into account the user
adjustments in base font and header font sizes.

There's a lot of usability research yet to be done on best practices
for HTML presentation.
