Hi there,

Searched through the archives and couldn't find anything like this. Does 
anyone know if there's any properties like this proposed in CSS3?

The min-width, max-width properties are excellent and add a lot to 
creating fluid layouts, however min-left would be invaluable.

It would allow you to do things like this, for example placing a banner 
on the top right, but preventing it overlapping the logo on the left.

#logo {
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;

    width: 100px;
    height: 70px;

#banner {
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    right: 0;
    min-left: 110px;

    width: 700px;
    height: 120px;

Would something like this be feasible at all?
