I could do this but the real thing shows something no screenshot will ever show. Download Safari 3.1.

http://www.apple.com/safari/

and with this page.

http://css-class.com/test/css/css.htm

simply resize the viewpoint (no completely static). Hover the links and also tab through all the links for the whole page. Resize the text down (Crtl plus -) by four times and play around with the sticky footer and false clearing footer.

With the page filling the whole (maximized) window (1200px wide minimum). Press (Ctrl plus 0) and then bump the text size up (Ctrl plus +) four times.

All test will show a very flexible faux column. I have been working with this template four 8 months now. I haven't even done any basic styling for the text and links but Safari 3.1 shows the magic of CSS2 and CSS3 with my very un-styled page. It's only the beginning!

It's good to see that Opera may soon support hsla color and when it does it will show my test pages the same as Safari 3.1 does now. Thank you to all at Opera. BTW, I would dearly love to remove that hack so the present Opera 9.5 doesn't butcher my use of hsla.. The challenges an CSS author faces. :-)
