 eg the attached screenshot. I don't know if his is "new" or was already
 the case for the old website (cannot check since I don't have a php enable
 web-server at hand).
 > Yes, I am aware of the 'uneven' lists. The only way I could imagine
 breaking this up it by breaking the lists of individual arrangements - but
 I don't think this would be better, because then you can easily end up
 with the arrangement name out-of-screen and to the bottom of a
 corresponding thorn name. The reason why you didn't see this in the old
 list was that the old list was just that: one long list. I could easily do
 that, and in fact had it like that first, but I personally found it better
 to get more 'value for screen space', and broke the list into
 arrangements, which then are placed next to each other. This is done
 sorted alphabetically, but the number of columns dynamically, which is why
 you might end up with a setup that looks a bit odd depending on the
 current list of thorns and your browser width. Improvements are welcome,
 the script is in git.

 I am providing an improvement in
 which is pure css and works fine if one eg drops the file into a local
 checkout of the ET website git repo. I lets the browser wrap the lines
 based on giving it a column width as a number of "em"s ie roughly how many
 characters are in the column.
