    Yesterday, I got into a brief discussion about changing the gutters of a story. It eventually turned into a small argument. Why would you every change the gutter width of a story. For example, wanting to run a five-column story on six, the paginator wanted to nearly double the gutter. I agree with the use of white space, but I believe this is not necessary when comparing this story to the others that will run on the page with their gutters unchanged.

    What do you think?

    I can't see any legitimate reason for a gutter not to be a pica in width every time.

    I'd have to see the page to make a decision. I like thinking outside the box, and on a feature page, a wider gutter could be put to interesting use, I suppose.

    if it's done right, it works.

    put control of gutter width into the hands of a rookie, and you have shit.
