In my previous mail to css-d I covered it with an example, which was a
seven column layout (imagine a forum, basically), in which one column,
the thread title, was capable of automatically expanding.
It's currently done with a table set to 100% width, and one column set
to 100% which forces it to expand to maximum width. I haven't been able
to do the same thing with the standard <div> type setup for making
I'm not sure if I'm still being unclear, but I figured I'd use this to
try and expand a little bit more. My previous mail was "Help with
seven column layout.", which just got the reply to use a table, which
in the example case is OK, but in other situations where you wish to
force things to be the width of the screen, doesn't work as well.
For the record, the example I was fiddling with is at:
http://untaken.net/sa-ng/ , and the basic idea is to force the biggest
column, the thread one, to expand and push the other elements across so
that it covers the screen horizontally.
Also, I'll be looking at the url you sent me, thanks, I just figured I'd
try and explain some more again.
