Sorry, it seemed like it would be confusing to include the whole page around it, so I left it to the tags being used for the actual index. But yes, its the center column.
You are right that it is a table, I just haven’t used one in ages so I was concerned about its responsiveness. The ideal scenario is that the space reserved for the image (all images will be the same size) should remain reserved even when there’s no image, so that the text is pushed over that distance to the right.
I’ll look at the CSS tables, thank you. :)
