pleasant folks as Zeldman, eric costello, and Owen Briggs, I’ve been experimenting extensively with CSS-only layouts. I started working on a new project, but decided that since it wasn’t “fixed” it was too easy just to change what I wanted to do if I couldn’t get something to go just how I wanted.
So I started converting this yellow monstrosity instead. With a model to work to, it brought a lot more discipline. In any case, I got the whole thing converted in no time flat (thanks to the people that are following this stuff closely and writing about it) – except for one thing – I can’t seem to pin the right hand yellow panel to the side of the browser window. As well, the three columns just end when they end – I can’t extend the left and right to the bottom of the browser window. I’ve tried every combination of margin: 0px and whatnot I can think of.
When I do get it together I think I’m going to move to the new style of code for this site. It’s much simpler, much smaller, more fluid and easier to work with. Even if NS 4 people can’t participate on an equal footing – I’m 90% sure it’s worth it.
