Chapter 10. Creating Pages with FrontPag... > Layouts with Multiple Staggered Colu...

Layouts with Multiple Staggered Columns

These provide visual variety by avoiding a strictly linear arrangement. The layouts in this group are:

  • Two-column staggered body—The table has four columns (the outside two providing whitespace margins) and multiple rows. Alternating blank cells with filed ones in each column give the staggered effect.

  • One-column body with staggered sidebar—The table again has four columns, but does away with the margin columns. The leftmost two columns alternate page elements with whitespace by breaking the columns into rows. A spacer column separates these columns from the main text area, which has one row and thus isn't staggered.

  • One-column body with two sidebars—This might equally belong in the section on sidebar layouts, but it's here because it staggers the sidebar content. Here you have five columns, two of which are spacers. The two leftmost columns are broken into rows to provide a staggered-entry navigational section. The main central column is for text and a suggested graphical sidebar occupies the rightmost column.

  • Two-column staggered body with contents and sidebar—This is about as elaborate as you should get: six columns, two of which are spacers. The leftmost column has one row and is the navigational area. The rightmost column is a sidebar column. The two large center columns are broken into rows, allowing page elements to be inserted in a staggered arrangement.
