The default way Split view handles the panes is to tile them horizontally:




However, you can change this by going to Tools -> Options -> HTML Designer -> General and selecting “Split views vertically”:




Now the Split view will tile the panes vertically:



NOTE:  When you do this, you may have to close and reopen some files to see this take effect.

    Absolutely! in the same area (Tools | Options | HTML Designer | General) there is an option called "Start pages in" that allows you to choose the default starting view of web pages.

    Your solution works perfectly in VS 2013, and for this I thank you.
