I'm working on a magazine-style website which has a fluid two-column box centered in the middle of the screen (think of this as the spread of a magazine). The left column contains an image and the right column contains text.
The image defines the height of the spread, and thereby the space the copy has, however the copy can be of variable length. This is what poses the problem.
The two ways I know of solving this are a vertical scrollbar in the right column, or pagination within the column.
I don't think either of these options is great. How else could I solve this problem?
