I'm working on a left columned sidebar theme. I've read arguments that the sidebar should come AFTER content in the code. I can get it to work, however, if My sidebar has more content than my "content" div, then I run into problems. I'm using an position: absolute to get the sidebar to be left of the content, but second in the code.
So I'd like some opinions on the merits of content coming before the sidebar in the code.
