Hi!

I´ve found this http://bluerobot.com/web/layouts/layout1.html and it works great.

Now i want another "box" beneath the first called .Meny.
I cant get the other one to "follow" the first. If i set top:300px and then the menu overflodes it it hides.

Hope anyone could understand, both problem and language Laughing out loud

I am guessing on the left you are looking to put another box under #menu called #meny, and although you could do it the way you are planning, but it would be better if the absolute positioned left box was a container for holding all the boxes you want.

I have redone the blue robot code to add an extra box for you as below - I also changed to the simplified hack for IE 5.n

	<h1>Left Menu</h1>
	<p>This is a simple two column layout with a left menu box. By modifying the stylesheet, this layout can serve as the basis for many standard two column layouts. As is the case with most layouts in the Reservoir, the order of elements (header, content, menu) in the HTML source is friendly and accessible to mobile computers, text-based browsers, and alternative/accessible devices.</p>
	<p>Much effort has been made to ensure that the layouts in the BlueRobot Layout Reservoir appear as intended in CSS2 compliant browsers. The content should be viewable, though unstyled, in other web browsers. If you encounter a problem that is not listed as a known issue, I am most likely not aware of it. <em>Please</em> <a href="mailto:[email protected]?subject=Layout Reservoir" title="Email BlueRobot about a layout issue">email me</a> a heads-up. Your help will benefit the other five or six people who visit this site.</p>

NB: The blue robot code used capitals for the first letter of its ID's - It is a good idea to not use capitals due to strict xhtml.
