Hi, Brian,

| ... Opera is a notable exception.

Try to open http://terrainformatica.com/w3/block-inline.htm then.
I wouldn't consider still this as a support of inline-block.
(no offence to Opera developers, in fact - my deepest and honest respect to
them)

BTW: flow: right-to-left/left-to-right
solves accessibility problem (what should go first in source: content or
sidebar).

| That sounds pretty swell except for the bit about it being hypothetical.
| Somewhat less hypothetically, "display: inline-block" seems like it may be
| another good way to accomplish that kind of layout except that most
browsers
| do not yet seem to support it (or at least, they do not yet support it
| well); Opera is a notable exception.
