Hi guys. I'm just wondering when I should use width and when I should use min-width. I thought there wasn't really a difference but after a day messing around with a site layout trying to get stuff to fit together... I gueass I was wrong.
Cheers. I have a site that's needing a complete redesign. I laid it out with absolutely positioned divs, and now I'm being asked to center it all. I guess that's what I get for cutting corners eh?
Just a thought - You could still use absolute positioning & have it center aligned. You would just have to have all your elements within a container which was relatively positioned with correct margins like this...
margin: 0 auto;
The child elements then take their position from the parent element (container), not the body.

using absolute positioning unless elements are to overlap is unnecessary and just makes the coding much more complex. You can't centre absolutely positioned elements because they are positioned relative to a single location, not multiple locations..
Really the layout I'm after can be put into 3 columns. It's not as tidy to code as I would have preferred but I've just gone with 3 floating columns and I just need to work out the positioning of things.
