Front Page ver 3 has a template I like and occasionally make recourse to. A simplified version is:
<td align="right" width="50%">supply content for left half, leave right half blank</td>
<td align="right" width="50%"></td>
<td width="50%">supply content for right half, leave left half blank</td>
and, of course, this repeats until I'm out of content for the page.
Can this (two column staggered body) design be reproduced in CSS? And if it can, can the column widths be EFFECTIVELY specified with percents? I throw that last one in as a kicker because I would prefer using percents but find that when the content of the columns (in the HTML example above) happens to be a collection of jpg thumbs being used as links, the columns expand in size to accommodate all the content as a single line and I wind up with a few yards of horizontal scrolling. This may be because the <img ...> specifies the src jpg's widths and heights in pixels. Mix and match may be the problem there. If so, would it be a similar problem with CSS if an analogue to the HTML can be made?
