Just starting to work with the CS6 fluid grid layouts. One issue I can't work out - background colors between the "columns". Example - My website has a blue background color. I have a two divs side by side. Dreamweaver automatically assigns a left-margin to the div on the right. That left-margin shows the blue (body) background, whereas I would prefer the divs to cosy up to each other with the same white background. I cannot seem to just add up the percentages of the left-margin and the div and then eliminate the left-margin. That pushes the div onto a new row. I tried adding white as the background-color to the gridContainer class, but that shows up the white margins on each side of the website that I do not want. I guess I could put a background image behind the whole website that might work, but I assume I'm missing a really easy resolution? Thx in advance...
By default, there is gutter space between floated divisions in FGLs. I've found no way around this except to compromise a little on design and to keep things very simple.
Thanks Nancy. I kind of figured that might be the answer... not sure why I'd even need gutter space - I wonder if I can just set it to zero. Then I can revert to my original fix and set the background-color to the gridContainer class. I'll give that a whirl. Cheers!
