View Full Version : Best fixed width three column 2-1-3 options?

08-17-2010, 05:35 PM
I have another similar thread open, but I felt the need to have this one as well.

I have always assumed the Matthew James Taylor layouts were best, but they seem very complex when it comes to editing them.

Are there any better alternatives out there which are fixed width, easy to edit and display content in a 2-1-3 column order? Needs to work in IE6, too.

I would prefer to not use faux columns, but I don't know if it's possible without getting overly complex.

Please point me in the right direction. I have a project I need to get working on as soon as possible.

Thank you.

Thank you, Frank.

I managed to find this (http://www.maxdesign.com.au/articles/css-layouts/three-fixed/) layout through one of the links at the URL you provided.

How does it look in comparison to the one that Matthew James Taylor provides? Any pros/cons? It definitely seems much easier to edit, but I don't want to use it if it means sacrificing older browser compatibility.

If anyone else has some input and/or good fixed-width 2-1-3 layout options, please let me know.

Thank you.

Ack, just realized the layout I linked to above isn't a 2-1-3 format.

The search continues. I need some help...

Resolved. Please close or delete this thread.
