If I change the browser from full screen to variable width and thus allow myself to shrink it, first of course the margins shrink. But once I run out of margins, it eats into both the content and sidebar. I see on other sites that it sacrifices the sidebar first. What controls that?
I see that the other sites when I view code still seem to specify both a width for the header (and thus total of content and sidebar) and a width for the sidebar. I also tried removing the width of the sidebar from my css, but that didn't do it.
There's also a wrapper, and of course I do want to keep control so that the sidebar doesn't sudden drop below or protrude into content, so I'll stay fixed rather than fluid width. Thank you.
