    Fluid/Elastic Layouts

    Morning all!

    My CSS and HTML skills are pretty good but I've always made fixed width layouts.

    I am wanting to make a fluid layout that allows 2 floating columns, side by side, but one of them a fixed width.

    All of the samples I have found seem to have both columns using percentages but this is no use to me.

    The one site I have found that does what I want is MultiMap. You can see that the blue div on the left is fixed and the one to it's right stretches to fit the screen.

    If anyone can suggest to me how I can achieve this it would be appreciated.

    The Page I am working on is here

    (Div id 'mapArea' is the one I need to stretch!)
