    Your Part B is very well organized and I think two columns was a very successful choice you made for the layout. I chose three and that made them very narrow and caused me a lot of headaches. Two columns looks like it fit your various fonts and point sizes well. However, I see you kept the hyphenation on instead of turning it off. That could also be why everything seems to be sitting nicely. Had you turned it off might you have had big words and awkward spacing to compensate for?
