I've been developing a web site template, and I'm almost done with the
recently requested changes except I'm having two issues.
1.) I tried to use the fixed width left column, fluid right column system as
described at A List Apart, with negative margins. After I found out that
the negative margins weren't doing anything, I removed them. The idea was
to go with a fixed 220px column on the left, and a fluid right column. The
problem is using margin-left on a container with 100% width seems to
immediately tell Firefox that we're going to ignore that declaration.
Consequently, the right container which has 100% width but a margin-left
request of 230px, doesn't adhere to the margin. It sits pushed below the
left column in its own little space, and needs to come up.
2.) The menu needs to come up to hang out on the same line with the
background. I've used clearing divs and it doesn't seem to do the trick.
