Overriding: Flexible, unequal column widths

The FSS does not support flexible, unequal column widths, but it is not difficult to create FSS-style classes to accomplish this. This examples shows styles which could be used to create two columns that are fixed at 40% and 60% of the container width. The size of gap between the columns can be tweaked by adjusting the actual % numbers in the styles.

NOTE: The background colours on this page have been added to help the reader recognize the different regions of the demo. They are not provided by the FSS.
