Can't seem to figure out the right code (or most practical and functional) for my layout... would like some advice.
Essentially, i'm working on a two column layout with a header. The left column is a fixed width fluid height . The right is fluid (100%). The header overlaps both columns. It starts at the left and is about 800px in width.
There are a few problems i need to overcome.
1 - The left column nav column needs to have a background image (png with drop shadow) which using CSS will expand to 100% height.
2 - The header will also contain an image with drop shadow.
3. The right column (content window) needs to slide behind and under the header... so all drop shadows are revealed.
I do not want the header to move... i'd like it to be visible at all times.
I'll attach a JPG of a rough idea of what i have in mind for you to visualize or experiment.
