Free Web Template: Two Column Stretches to Fit Layout


Two Column Stretches to Fit Layout

Narrow Browser

About this Web Template:

I was reading an article on Muffin Research Labs and I noticed that the second column had three columns in it, and for some reason I had to resize the window, and noticed that the three columns moved around. I thought it was neat, so I decided to try and make my own version of the layout.

The background image was built in Photoshop CS.
