I believe it is called a YUI Grid? Or it uses yui for the css and html. But I didn't know that... Anyways, I would like help with this css layout I have found. I am currently exploring css layouts and I don't really know how to work the yui.. grid? css? I haven't really encountered it before because I usually work with just plain old basic css and I don't use the em for my css... so.. its even more confusing (plus I'm a beginner when it comes to coding)

Its a 950 px width I think. If I wanted to change the css layout to a 750 width, how would I do that?

Here is the html code:


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title>Full Secondary Column, 1/2 x 1/2 Main Column.</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" >
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles.css" >
</head>
<body>
<div id="doc" class="yui-t7">
<div id="hd">
<div id="header"><h1><a href="http://www.free-css.com/free-css-layouts.php">Free CSS Layouts</a></h1></div>
</div>
<div id="bd">
<div id="yui-main">
<div class="yui-b">
<div class="yui-g">
<div class="yui-u first">
<div class="content">Content Here</div>
</div>
<div class="yui-u">
<div class="content">Content Here</div>
</div>
</div>
</div>
</div>
<div class="yui-b">
<div id="secondary">Secondary Column</div>
</div>
</div>
<div id="ft">
<div id="footer">Footer</div>
</div>
</div>
</body>
</html>


and then here is the css code:

Thank you. And any other help to understanding this would be much appreciated.. looking at all the yui in the coding makes my head hurt...
