"If the scan length of a line of text is longer than 10-12 words or shorter than 4-5 words, it can be very difficult to read. This means that readers with large or small browser windows will have trouble."

All of a sudden the lily docs in Firefox start to look like attached. My screen is 1280x1024, and I want things to look OK on my 1600x1200 mac as well.

What is the direction in which you would like to fix/revert? Currently, the logical structure of the web pages have been described, but the readability of the pages is not quaranteed.

I assume that users are capable of resizing their browser windows appropriately, and I always find it offensive when site designers pretend to know better what I find more easily readable. For example, if I run 1600x1200, I use larger fonts. Your 800px width hack doesn't detect this.
