Perhaps this is obvious, but you can also split the window horizontally, i.e.,
so that the two pieces appear side-by-side:

    C-x 3 runs the command split-window-horizontally, which is an
    interactive compiled Lisp function.
    It is bound to C-x 3.
    (split-window-horizontally &optional SIZE)

This may or may not be a good idea, depending on the relative width of your
monitor and the text displayed in the window.
