Latest post excerpt which spans two columns of excerpts (2 posts)

    Hi all,

    I've been searching the forums, but as yet have not found a solution to what I'm trying to achieve.

    I want to display excerpts of the 20 most recent posts in a particular category in two columns - but I'd like to style the latest post in the category differently, and have it span the two columns.

    1 (latest post)
    ---------------
       2   |   3
       4   |   5
       6   |   7 etc

    I had some luck with a PerishablePress tutorial and CSS for the first post, but it put my ordering out of whack for the second and third posts due to using CSS floats.

    I'm sure there's a WP/PHP guru out there somewhere who can restore my sanity and show me how this is done. Fingers are crossed!

    Thanks.

    This is not exactly what you need but should give you an idea of the coding necessary to style content based on a counter.
