I was having trouble implementing a solution that works in IE too.
This one does, reasonable well.  It would be preferable not to add a
"wrapper" div, since this will require changing the init file.  If you
know of a solution using floats or a similar method, run it by me so I
can test it out.

A List Apart explains how to implement this with cookies, but we would

I'm sure there is a way to do this with server-side scripting, but I
do not have the knowledge to implement this.  Maybe someone else on
