Top News Item

Image for Story 1

The top news item is presented with a headline, abstract and image. On devices supporting it, the image will be floated left and the text will flow around it. The abstract ends up with a link to the full article.

This is the full article and so will contain several paragraphs of text. If the story gets too long, the reader will need to scroll through a significant amount of text to get to the navigation links to escape the story if their handset doesn't have a "back" key.

To avoid this, you can split the story up into several pages and link them with previous/next links. The disadvantage with this is that the high network latency of mobile networks will result in a poorer user experience for the user who wants to read the whole story.

So, as with all design, this is a tradeoff.
