Hi all
I would like to use CSS to layout some infomation like a table i have some raw css can someone tell me if i am even close, i cant test it as i am at work

#footerlist{}
#row1  {position:absolute; height="auto"; width="auto"}
#row2  {position:absolute; height="auto"; width="auto" left="inherit"
#row3  {position:absolute; height="auto"; width="auto" left="inherit"

my plan was to put all the row divs in the footerlist div and then i would be able to move them where i need them

position absolute is not required. Since the row has to come in the next line only, and by default a new div always goes to next line

by any chance you share the page or a link to the same?

In settings.css, replace row1, row2 and row3 with

#row1  { width: 100px; padding: 10px; height="auto"; }
#row2  { width: 100px; padding: 10px; height="auto"; }
#row3  { width: 100px; padding: 10px; height="auto"; }

basically, float:left forces the divs to stack horizontally with each other
