Lesson 21. Positioning Three Columns wit... > Styling the #content Column

Styling the #content Column

The first column must be floated and set with a width of 44%. It also should be given some margin using margin: 1em 3%; as shown in Listing 21.8. The results can be seen in Figure 21.8. This will provide 1em of space above the container and 3% margin on either side, as a gutter between other columns.

Listing 21.8. CSS Code for Styling the #content Column

body
{
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    font: 90% arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
    background: #387A9B;
    color: #333;
}

h1
{
    background: #D36832;
    color: #FFF;
    margin: 0;
    padding: .5em 3%;
    border-bottom: 5px solid #387A9B;
}

h2, h3
{
    margin-top: 0;
}

#container
{
    background: url(back01.gif) repeat-y 50% 0;
}

#container2
{
    background: url(back02.gif) repeat-y 80% 0;
}

#content
