It’s unfortunate that pretty much no one composes with a scale when publishing for the web. Your article is a great step forward.

Also overlooked are line lengths. Since the beginning of the web, It has been a standard practice to expand the line lengths out with the width of the browser (like your site is currently :), causing line lengths to expand way too long. If an optimal line length for print is 66 characters, line lengths for web should be even smaller.
