      Sure, do it your way :) It was just a friendly note. I didn't learn that system at all, and I'm not using the YUI grids system either. I simply learned enough CSS to roll my own.

      The only thing I needed was to realize that setting float: none, display:inline on a div makes it work.

      Best regards,

      Hi Julie,

      The issue is with the cascading rules. The units are incorrectly
      inheriting the -gc rather than -gb.

      Adding the following to your stylesheet should resolve it:
      .yui-gc .yui-gb .yui-u {
      float: left;
      width: 32%;
      }

      I double-checked the grid builder, and it does include the full markup
      template, including the "yui-main" div, but that isn't the issue here.
      This is exactly the type of issue I am resolving with the updated yui3
      grids.

      Sorry about the hassle.

      -Matt

      Thanks for the reply but the 2nd section(yui-gc) is still going to the 2nd line. Any ideas?

          Also, the builder only displays a yui-main div for me if I add a sidebar.
