      Hi,
      I'd like to use yui grids ma it seems only available for a standard
      800px width (750px exactly).
      My customer wants a 1024px width (eg. real 980px). What's better to do
      in your opinion? I could change by hand all che colomn widths of the
      CSS but I'm not sure it's the best solution.

      One more thing. My layout should have 3 main columns (with the central
      one divided in al least 3 parts). Is it possible to use the grids also
      for this layout?

      thank you in advance for your help

        Hi Roberto,
        I noticed in the documentation that it says "Note: Though pixels are listed above for reference, the dimensions are declared in percentages within the file. Min-widths are declared in pixels."
        Are you saying that this is not really true? Of course, I don't yet know exactly which "file" they are referring to.

            Roberto,

            The easiest way that I have found to do this is.:

            Rename #doc to #myDoc in your HTML, then setup the widths you want to #myDoc in your own CSS.

            This way you don't mod the grids css file itself.


            I have done this on my site (and a couple of others) and set the main div to a percentage.

            Here is a link to the site:
            http://blog.davglass.com/

            And a link to the CSS: (you will need to look for #davdoc)
            http://blog.davglass.com/wp-content/themes/davglass/style.css

            Hope that helps 8-)

              Thank you Dave and Joe,
              with your suggestions I was able to set the page width to the dimension
              I wanted.

              Still I don't understand if I can change (for example) the min-width of
              the right sidebar in yui-t4, still maintaining backward compatibility
              with the grid)

              It remains the problem of the third column. I mean my layout should have
              not two but three independent columns. The central one (the main
              referring to yahoo grids) should then be divided in columns (it's enough
              three columns)

              Any ideas about this?

              Thanks
