In this week’s issue of A List Apart, for people who make websites:

Faux Columns

by Dan Cederholm

It’s a beginning CSS designer’s nightmare and a frequently asked question at ALA: Multi-column CSS layouts can run into trouble when one of the columns stops short of its intended length. Here’s a simple solution.

by Patrick Griffiths

Thanks to our brilliant authors, and heap big thanks to ALA managing editor Erin Kissane, who prepared this issue while afflicted by sniffles.
