3col example using x.js - footer issue w/ FF184.108.40.206
When I access the site:
using firefox (220.127.116.11) on WinXP and shrink the width so the center exceeds the columns - the footer does not adjust down like it does in IE (isn't that a switch).
Getting 3cols to work with CSS is tough - the amount of hacks, negative margins and java is almost sending me back to a table for a layout.
the demo works fine in 1.5.x - misunderstood how it works
Doh! makes sense now ... the effect does not become visible until after you finish resizing and let the java "run" (jscript newbie here).
I am curious on the alistapart column where they referenced this "fix" and felt it was "wrong" - I'm curious to why they think that? (especially now that I've got it working!).
I will search more on how to do this in pure CSS on this site - thanks.
I've seen a few CSS methods elsewhere, - faux columns and the 32767px overflow, and a reference to fixing the "holygrail" solution with a fix to the star html hack (fix to a hack?) ... those are, well, at least "equally" creative solutions to a problem that shouldn't exist.
sorry to jump the gun with a non-issue.
