It's not a case of implementing it properly, it's a case of getting the desired
result. IE's float model is totally ****ed up, granted, but it can be worked
with. But I'm perfectly happy to deal with this side of things.

Well, yeah. I am aware it is resolution/screen size -dependent, but I was
meaning *generally*. I resized my window, and -- in general -- I experienced
three boxes going across. However, if more were added, I'd probably experience
more. Anyway, we're getting sidetracked into discussing how many boxes there are
across, which is not really the point!

We could do that, but I think it'd be better to get the adding of extra boxes to
happen server side instead of client side, if scripting is turned off (through
the same link/button). Let's look at this bit again once that part of the form
has been reworked though; it will be easier to see the most unobtrusive solution.

Anybody else have an opinion on this?

Can/Should this be changed?
