Item One | Item Two | Item Three | Item Four
Item Two | Item Three | Item Four | ...
As it gets narrow more items are removed from the left-hand side. So you get:
Item Three | Item Four | ...
That strikes me as being completely illogical.
Maybe it's just me, but I tend to put the important items on a list first as I read left to right.
So my suggestion is to remove items from the right-hand side first.
Item One | Item Two | ...
