How long are these pages, depper?
Are they longer than what some of the major news organizations use?
If you need to use separate in-content anchor links to navigate to the various sections of the page, would it possibly improve the user experience to create separate pages?
Personally, I wouldn't use anything different in terms of markup... but I LIKE the narrative style of a paragraph that captures the reader's imagination. If you can't craft an exciting first paragraph, then yea, maybe bullet points (I see that in newspaper articles from time to time).
And if you can't craft an interesting first paragraph teaser... well... maybe the article has bigger problems?
