### Divide a page into columns of unequal width?

Is it possible to divide a page into columns of unequal width?

I searched for this a long time ago, then gave up.

But I'm back!!!1

No, this is a weak spot of LaTeX.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

It's not default LaTeX, but some package may help, such as vwcol:

1. \documentclass{article}
2. \usepackage[english]{babel}
3. \usepackage{blindtext}
4. \usepackage{microtype}
5. \usepackage{vwcol}
6. \begin{document}
7. \begin{vwcol}[widths = {0.6,0.4}, sep = 0.8cm,
8. justify = flush, rule = 0pt, indent = 1cm]
9. \blindtext[5]
10. \end{vwcol}
11. \end{document}

It works on a page, as requested, but not for spanning multiple pages.
