Trying to recreate a page layout

P: n/a
I'm putting together a page layout, and I'm getting frustrated trying
to recreate a setup that I had made before, but forgotten exactly how.

The page is a table with two columns; the left is a fixed-width column
that acts as the page's sidebar, while the right column contains the
main text of the page.

The tricky part is that inside the right column is another table, 1x1,
that's aligned to the bottom right of the table cell, such that the
text flows around it. It was meant to be a short block of text at the
end of the front page's text, that introduced the reader to the latest
blog entries.

I can't seem to get the arrangement of the elements right. The text
either refuses to flow, or it flows but the 1x1 table won't move from
the upper right of the cell.

The last time I had done it, I used some combination of putting the
table inside a DIV and then adding a single CSS style tag, "bottom:
100%", while making sure the table was aligned to the right. Maybe
another element, of making sure the table and table cell widths were
set, or not set in a certain way? At any rate, I'm stumped.

Thanks,
