2 Cols, fixed width - V1

2 Columns, fixed width, variable height, horizontal centers - Version 01

Overall width: 940px (left: 210px - right: 729px)

Author: K.Heermann (flip-flop) http://planmatrix.de 2010/01/07
CMS-Version: >= V1.2.8
Version: V1.0 07.01.2010
Update:

Based on: 2 columns layout (fixed widths) (by Big John's Piefecta)

Requirement:

  • Content is to be located in the source text as the first
  • Any column may be longest.
  • Each column can be filled with a full field background
  • Header is to stand at the top margin of the Viewport
  • The page should be displayed horizontally centered. All the columns are floated.
  • Left and Main should stand side by side visually
  • CSS code should be conformal!

We have chosen a fixed width of 990px, to display the page well on 1024px screens.
