    Oh if it were that easy. Try doing a centered wrapper and jQuery slide and hide the divs to the left side. That “wrap-left” width is a calculation based on upon the width of the window and is re-sized accordingly.

    I’ll bow to you but I would have thought than an overflow:hidden on that content div would do just as well.

    …but then again…JQuery ain’t my thing.
