I've never seen a blog that ran across the screen. I've seen blogs with
columns (divs> that resize when a window is made smaller -- a left, middle,
and right --, but never one that was pure text across the page. Can you give
a URL for an example?
Pages should fluidly resize so that all the content appears in a window
that's made smaller. That's what I think they mean on the newsgroup. I am a
fan to the degree that they helped me; I've only seen a few sites belonging
to the regulars that I liked.
