  | [Aside: 'columns' is
  | usually the same as 'characters' except that some Chinese/Japanese
  | characters are two columns wide on screen.

Other languages have characters that use no horizontal space on the
screen at all (they go above, or below, the previous (or potentially,
I suppose, next, though I have no personal experience with that)

Of course, once you start moving the code in this direction, you should
also start to think about r to l scripts instead of assuming l to r is
correct for everyone.
