| Hello everybody, my first post here.
|
| I agree wholeheartedly with David. I have wanted to emulate newspaper
| style columns with server side generated content.
|
| The solution I ended up with was dividing the number of items to be
| displayed by the number of columns and hoping that they all have similar
| amount of content in them so the columns don't look wierd.
|
| All the way through I was wishing for something like Quark's chaining
| text fields.
|
| Something like what David is suggesting would be very useful.
