Subject Re: site with good tutorial on floating blocks

Cool, On a sidenote, today I had the fun chance to do this
rounded-corner/gradient design in xsl-fo (
http://arianhojat.com/temp/confidential_whole_2.gif). Since the area was
fixed width, I used that top header part as an image which extends the
border downwards, and a bottom-aligned image which extends the
border/gradient fade-in upwards. Then just used margins to put the text from
touching the header image. So just needed 2 sibling blocks to do it (header
and body blocks basically), wished though it was more like css rounded
corners with options to do it via wrappers, negative margins, floats etc.
Didn't really seem like xsl-fo could do it easily via those css-type
methods.

In retrospect, I am just patting myself on the back in this email :).
