[Plone-UI] CSS fluid(ish) help

Would using more explicit positioning work in your case?  Try adding the
following CSS to the declarations you already have:

  position: relative;

  position: absolute;
  position: absolute;
  left: 200px;

Does that work?  (If so, you should also be able to get rid of the "float:
left"s.)  If you want to maintain a background color on div two that stays
to the right edge of the wrapper div, I think you'll have to use whatever
javascript you're using to set the wrapper div's width to set div two's
width to W - 200.

Hope this helps (and makes sense),
