"Perfect 3 column liquid layout" (Matthew James Taylor) and Quirks Mode

Sent by Melbeach on 28 May 2008 18:06

Thanks for the help. Please accept my humble apologies, I referenced the wrong
layout. It's actually this 2-column layout that seems to require Quirks mode: You
can save this page's source and open it in Notepad. Delete the top line: <?xml
version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

When I do this, the right-column completely covers up the left-column.
Actually, the same thing will happen in Firefox if I convert this layout to an
html version and delete the declaration in question.
