Hello all,

I'm working on creating a website utilizing a 2-column layout having a fixed left-column and having a right column that remains a certain defined width, yet will expand vertically so as to accommodate varying amounts of copy, etc.

I'll be researching the issue, but if anyone could provide any tips or links to an appropriate thread and/or tutorial, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks

You know I wasn't really being lazy. I was asking for some time-saving advice from someone who might know more than I currently do.

Thanks though.

The CSS-Discuss wiki is one of the best resources for this sort of information out there. They have a page on two column layout links with a note on each. You should also look at three column layouts. They are easy to make into two column layouts and "in general" there are more of them and with better explanations.
