    hey all. what's this humongous negative margin for? i'm just curious. doesn't seem to be effecting anything.

    #container {
        width:940px;
        float:right;
        margin: 0 0 0 -310px;
    }

  2. I came looking for an answer to the same question. My guess is that it was designed that way for the 3-column layout, where the negative margin technique is useful for having sidebars on both the left and right but still having the middle (main) column first in the source order.

    I was wondering if it serves any purpose in the 2-column layout, or if you could just as easily zero out the margins and float #content in one direction and the asides in the other?
