Two-Column LazyGreedy Layout

suggest change

This layout uses one floated column to create a two-column layout with no defined widths. In this example the left sidebar is “lazy,” in that it only takes up as much space as it needs. Another way to say this is that the left sidebar is “shrink-wrapped.” The right content column is “greedy,” in that it takes up all the remaining space.


<div class="sidebar">
<img src="" />

<div class="content">
<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer nec odio. Praesent libero. Sed cursus ante dapibus diam. Sed nisi. Nulla quis sem at nibh elementum imperdiet. Duis sagittis ipsum. Praesent mauris. Fusce nec tellus sed augue semper porta. Mauris massa. Vestibulum lacinia arcu eget nulla. </p>
<p>Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad litora torquent per conubia nostra, per inceptos himenaeos. Curabitur sodales ligula in libero. Sed dignissim lacinia nunc. Curabitur tortor. Pellentesque nibh. Aenean quam. In scelerisque sem at dolor. Maecenas mattis. Sed convallis tristique sem. Proin ut ligula vel nunc egestas porttitor. Morbi lectus risus, iaculis vel, suscipit quis, luctus non, massa. Fusce ac turpis quis ligula lacinia aliquet. Mauris ipsum. Nulla metus metus, ullamcorper vel, tincidunt sed, euismod in, nibh. </p>


.sidebar {
  /* `display:table;` shrink-wraps the column */

.content {
  /* `overflow:hidden;` prevents `.content` from flowing under `.sidebar` */
