Henrik,

Unfortunately that won't work for me. The desired width is determined by 
an image inside of the floated div. The whole point of this technique is 
so that the layout does not have to be aware of any dimensions. My 
example just hard codes some dimensions on the "body" div, but it's the 
outer "content1" div that needs to be properly centered and can not know 
about the dimensions of it's children.

Cheers,
Wes
