Over the past week I’ve spent hours trying to re-create my current blog layout using CSS, instead of the nested HTML tables that I currently use. In theory, it would make for a cleaner layout, especially if I wanted to make any changes, but I would have to change every posted page first. On top of that, the simple truth is that I can’t figure out how to get a fixed-sized, two column layout: a fixed right column width and an “expand to fit” left column. The closest I came to it was using percentages, but those look extremely ugly on smaller resolutions/screens, and that’s made me reject the entire project. I simply refuse to change all of my markup text and lose some existing functionality, in the process of it all.
Totally disappointed by this, you know – I mean, it just sucks.
