All right, I feel like I'm talking your ears off! I've just run up against a situation with this design I'm working on that I haven't had to work with before:
On the home page at http://sanslux.com you can see that I have 3 recent post boxes: p1, p2 & p3, with separate styles. However, the divider line is supposed to grow and shrink based on the longest content of either boxes.
How I now have it set up is p2 has a right border of 1px and p3 has a left border of 1px, *but* the divider bar does not change length. So, something is up because as you can see, the content in p3 is longer but the border of p3 hasn't extended. The second part of the problem is that even if it *had* grown according to the content in that box, only the border of that p3 box would grow, and *not* the border in p2, which would throw of the divider look. Basically, I have no idea how to go about doing this. o.O
My instinct in any other situation would be to somehow wrap p2 and p3 in a div and create a background image repeating x that would give the impression of a dividing border line. But I don't know how I would do something like that in WP - and maybe that isn't the right solution, either.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Totally lost on this one and am fighting the urge to hit my head into the laptop keyboard, lol.
