NoteTab. You can go with tables, but the hard part is getting the
right amount of text in each column as Emmett pointed out. That
is why I have not messed with a script for NoteTab. You have
font size to consider, what if the user is set to override your
settings in his/her browser, what screen resolution are they
using, etc. If you just have a half a page to do in the three
columns then it is no big deal. however, if you have pages to do
then you either have to put them in three very long columns and
scroll up/down as Emmett mentioned or guess at how much screen
the visitors will have and keep making sets of columns so many
lines long. So, you would have like pages one after another and
the user would read three columns and then go to the next one.
What you end up with is a real pain for both you and the user
because of all the different variables.
You can look in NoteTab's HTML Library though and it has a couple
table wizards in it you can play with.
