I'm trying to understand what tells SS to put the menu on the left so it's floated like a picture and the page content snuggles up against it to the right? And for that matter, what tells the search box to be in the upper right?
I've looked at layout.css and some of the php and ss files but I can't find anything that indicates positioning information other than alignment. I want to be able to better control where elements I add appear on the page but it doesn't make sense to my HTML mind. I know very little about PHP and CSS so I keep vapor locking on it.
