I'm setting up a site with two columns and would like some advice on how things should be lined up so that they're pleasing to the eye.
I've got a title and a couple of lines up top as a description. Then the rest of the page (other than the footer) is split 50-50. The left column has a title, then 4 or 5 items consisting of a title and a brief description. (i.e. resources for consumers, then a list of resources with links). The right column has the same thing.
So if I split the page 50-50, how should I lay out the two columns of text? Left align? Center? some sort of golden ratio? Center the heading then left align the list below that?

Two columns with center titles never look right to me. I would suggest left alignment on the titles for each item and justifying the brief description part. This would be a more eye pleasing look. To get a better idea take a look at some news sites. They seem to have a similar layout that you are describing.
