Nested Left Floated Box

Ver 2.3

Simple enough template to put together. The menu box is nested in the main content div, and floated to whichever side you want, in this case to the left.

The width needs to be specified because as far as I know IE5 (jeez, again?) stretches it differently to other browsers, as does Opera!

One thing I found was that the content col HAS to be taller than the left box (ok, normally it would be anyway) otherwise it looks awful. The content div wont stretch to the size of the box div like tables (*sniff*)!

One problem I had was with the paragraphs (the paragraphs you are reading now). If I set margins on the paragraph, although the text was sitting against the nested div, the margin would not work there, but would only work against the main div! I had to set a margin on the nested div to compensate.

This template has been tested in:

Changes in this version:

  1. Defined zero padding for the body, Opera seems to like that.
