...when serving pages as 'text/html'.
Validator I used was off Dreamweaver 8 and also off Firefox Web Developer Tools. The latter is HTML
Tidy; I thought the DW8 was based on w3.org.
I'm gathering the problem is this:
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
What should it be?

Hmmm -- I did do testing for resizing larger - smaller is rarely an issue. Admittedly didn't test
for the other two specifically. Appreciate being reminded about this.

I can do a 3 column with the big one in the center -- have them on the site. But couldn't find
anything with 4 columns that met what I had to do on that site as far as links and content.
I can "live" with the iced-4-column but future work needs 4 columns where at least ONE of the middle
or inner columns can be elastic.

I think it would help with maintenance. In fact, that's the only reason I would take the time to do
it. Right now if I alter say the padding and margin on those inner columns, I have to get it right
on every ONE of those classes. If I "cleaned" it up or compacted it -- one change would be all that
would be needed.
Appreciate your feedback a lot.
