footer inside which relative div? i don't follow you.

Any chance you can setup a few test pages somewhere and we will post 
snapshots / impressions? What you are suggesting here is too error 
prone, as we may do something different from what you meant and won't 
help for the progress but take back instead.

My take on this issue is as follows. Somehow we need to split the 
rightbox into 3 parts which will be completely independent from each 
other, other than being laid out relative to each other. The 2 parts is 
the content, which can be wider than the window and scroll. The 1 and 3 
are of a known size and should always fit into the window. Can we do that?

While we are at it, I'd love to have a real tail div, following the 
leftbox and rightbox (whichever is longer) and not being part of the 
rightbox. Can we do that?
