Yes, it certainly helped me how to put things where I wanted them to go.
Hmm, by the way, do you know any way to place the .description of gallery folder back to the right side from
deviations as it had been before they did change the thumbnail size?

That did the trick.  I just hadn't thought of using float at all.

Sometimes we rather think too complex than giving simple solutions a try :D

Yes, indeed. I've been trying with absolute position and all kinds of paddings and margins, but all it did was move the description area around, but the thumbs still stayed underneath and not on the right side where I wanted them to go.

Hi Fairy Ann!
Thanks so much for this tutorial!!!!
I made my css journal with it !!!!!!!!!!!
I'm so happy (and I lost a piece of my brain too... but doesn't matter ... :XD: ) It's simple but ok for me. Don't look perfectly on IE (damned IE :fork:!) but It works for now. I'll try to optimize a pair of things reading better your tutorial about it
Thanks again for sharing and help us
