Layout - Faux Layout vs Holy Grail

110 New Member
Looking at various Holy Grail techniques for html layouts, I came across Faux Positioning Layout.

What I'm curious about is the differences between the two. I have no understanding of the Holy Grail, but have a working implementation of Faux Positioning (which may be a bit harder to do than the Holy Grail).

Both are compatible among various browsers, but are they really both the same thing? They both have negative margin-left css values, I believe. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm also curious if there is a way to show my faux positioning layout (4 files) without wasting a huge amount of space on a thread. And I know linking outside of this page is strictly forbidden.

Not an answer to your question(s), but simply for my own edification-- please point me to where it says "linking outside of this page is strictly forbidden."

I guess this refers to the unacceptable policy of "posting links to a forum that is in competition with Bytes.com IT/Developer Network."

I thought you meant that it is unacceptable to provide a link to your site in question....

For a graphical presentation, see http://users.telenet.be/sacn/tmp/layout.png. I would like to have: * source ordered columns: header, content, sidebar, footer * fixed width columns (either px or em units). Because I don't like reading very long lines and IE does not...

Hi Spent the past week looking at CSS renderings of "liquid" 3-column pages (with both Header and Footer that can also grow). On testing, none of them seem fully cross-browser campatible. In almost all of them, the left column seems fixed. Page doesn't grow when content added to header. When it does, the header overlaps the top of the columns.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
