Prevent Floating Text
I have a simple site which i am trying to construct using <divs> in CSS rather than tables etc. I have a navigation bar on the left positioned absolutely and 120 pixels wide by 100% high. Next to that is the content section which is 100% high - but how to set its width is causing me a serious headache.
Basically, I want the content to be centered on the page - so I set the content div to 100% width but when the page is compressed (i.e. the browser window becomes small) the text floats over the navigation bar to maintain its central position, and it is this which I am trying to prevent, but can't for the life of me see how!

Re: Prevent Floating Text
Give you rdiv with the content a padding-left value of 120px and that should stop the top going over your navigation that is 120px wide.
Hope this helps,
