CSS - Beginner struggling with content inside a wrapper
Posted on 2011-10-24
I am slowly transitioning from MS access, VBA etc to doing a few websites. Been trying to get my head around css and failing... it seems there aren;t any good free css div drawing packages...
I want a css div that is centered on the page, white background, black border 1 px.....
I want it to be 770px wide, and variable height.
Inside it i want a col1 (left) about 150 wide, for the Navigation list... and col2 (right) taking up the rest of the 770 (770-150 = 620...) so should it be 620?
Regardless of how much content there is in the col2... i want the navigation to float vertically so that its always visible, as the viewer scrolls down column 2.
IS this all possible with CSS....?
I have cobbled together so many failed versions using various tutorials..... i know i could do this with just a table or a frameset (old school!) but want to do it properly.
What would really help is being able to draw the divs i want and see them on the page i think... i am too used to R.A.D. in access or .Net!
