We're starting an online magazine, and would like to know if it is possible with CD for our articles to appear in two columns rather than one.... Our best hope is to have the columns automatically of equal length, no matter what the length of the article, and we realize that for a long article, readers may need to scroll down to get to the borrom of the left column, and then scroll back up to get to the top of the right column.

If you really do hate your users that much, you can probably find a way to do it using CSS. Try doing a Google search for "CSS snaking columns".
I don't think it's really possible; this is a limitation of HTML and it's really dreadfully inappropriate in a web page.
There are several reasons that a newspaper uses "snaking columns" for their articles.
