CSS woes

If web standards really are all they are cracked up to be, then why is it that only Internet Explorer does what I expect when I try to adjust the layout of this site? Why will I have to spend frustrated hours reading through examples to get the menu on the left? What am I missing about positioning?

    My guess is that if IE is the only browser doing what you want it to do, then you aren’t following the standards. ;)

    Are you trying to add your own style in addition to WordPress defaults, or are you tweaking the WordPress default styles themselves?

    Very generally speaking, you should be able to move the menu code before the main column code, throw a float: left; on both, and then make sure their total width (including padding and margins) doesn’t exceed 100%. That should get you the effect you’re going for.

    If you have any more specific problems/questions, feel free to hit me up on email.
