Sorry, this thing is driving my brain so crazy I'm getting left and right
mixed up. What I meant to say was that the blue box is supposed to stay
flush with the *right* side of the browser window. But when I set width to
ems, it moves over to the left.
I also noticed that when using ems, if I open up my Bookmarks column, the
blue box shifts outside of the entire page. But I just realized it's
probably because the blue box div is separate from the content div and
there's no container div around this whole section. Arrrgghh. Our backend
site structure was pretty poorly designed and it's driving me nuts.
I had our developer move the banner image and the blue box into the content
div (I don't have direct access to those b/c we're using ColdFusion to pull
things dynamically), but then things got really screwy and floats didn't
seem to help, so we moved everything back. And now for some reason the blue
box doesn't want to move back up so that it's aligned w/ the top of the
banner even though I think I reverted all the CSS back to the original.
<Sigh>....I think I may just have to reconcile with the fact that I'm not
really going to be able to fully fix this right now until we can clean up
other parts of our code. Guess that means I go back to concentrating on the
MacArthur site, which at least I have more control over.
