a css layout with 4 text boxes in a 2x2 grid

So here is what your looking for...

-  2 x 2 grid layout
-  Automatically Adusts all boxes when modifying the outer container's height and width properties.

<style>

div.box_layout {
	width:400px;		/* only adjust the width to resize all div widths */
	height:400px;		/* only adjust the height to resize all div heights */
	border:0px solid #900;
	padding:0px;
	margin:0px;
	line-height:30px;  		/* sets the padding between the rows */
}

div.text_box {
	line-height:normal;
	display:inline-block;
	width:49%; 		/* sets the number of boxes per row */
	height:49%;		/* sets the number of boxes per col */
	padding:0;
	margin:0;
	background-color:#ffffff;
	border:1px solid #F00;
}

div.box_header {
	background-color:#F00;
	color:#FFF;
	text-align:center;
}

</style>

    <div class="box_layout" >
        <div class="text_box" ><div class="box_header" > 1 </div> </div>
        <div class="text_box" ><div class="box_header" > 2 </div> </div>
        <div class="text_box" ><div class="box_header" > 3 </div> </div>
        <div class="text_box" ><div class="box_header" > 4 </div> </div>
    </div>

The boxes seem to all be in a single column in Firefox.

These show the technique for removing the extra space between them that's causing them to not sit next to each other:
