CSS Layout experiment 3a

Three nested CSS layers, one floating

The style rules for DIV layers and contained text can be found through this link to the layer experimental style sheet .

The BODY of this page has all of its margins set at zero, and its left and right paddings set at 40px . The so resulting 100% BODY width available for rendering, now corresponds to the length of the horizontal ruler sitting just above the layer example.

A snapshot of a correct rendering of this example is available.

All three paragraphs in this example are marked up inside one DIV with a pink background that in its turn is nested inside a DIV with a light grey background color. The paragraphs themselves have three different background colors, and this middle P is also set to be presented with justified text. Rest of the details can be found in the HTML source code and the stylesheet.
