I just read some tutorials on CSS Positioning (Tutorials 18 and 19) and am trying to get a layout to work because I want to convert my current layout using tables to CSS.

The layout I want is a 3 columnn one. The left and right columns are at a fixed size, and the middle column is variable so that depending on the size of the clients screen, only the middle will change in size. The problem is I can't get the middle column to fit perfectly in between the side columns for variable resolutions.

Any help is appreciated.

- Thanks, Guy

EDIT: All I had to do was look at the next tutorial from the page above. Sorry for the waste of time.

Technically, you should only use tables for tabular data. This has always been the case, but it's a popular bodge for positioning graphics and for layouts.

I found that the tutorials at www.elated.com helped quite a bit and explained everything well. Guy's link above looks quite good too.

so from what i understood from elated.com
is thats its all about positioning your divs absolutely within a relatively positioned container which is basically the same as using margins and all cause if you have two absolutely positioned containers next to each other the one tends to cover the other one up making the content unreadable



he i just respawnd this thread cause i know how ppl hate it when you make a new thread about an existing topic =p
