OK, in that case we are talking at crossed purposes. That is the only 'grid' thing I associate with web design. I clearly have no idea what 'placing hanging lines in a grid' means! Sorry 'bout that. :icon_biggrin:

960 Grid System

if you look at the at the horizontal lines in the spring valley example they are not at regular intevals


not

50,100,150 px

thats what i'd call a hierarchical horizontal grid

OK, so bear in mind I am a code monkey mainly, if you explain what you need and why you need I may be able to give a more technical answer but I don't understand the graphic design terms.

If you want a grid-like layout with varying box sizes then it can be achieved through using CSS, HTML and floats with the CSS box model actually dictating where your grid/boxes sit.

likewise :) I'm trying to get some graphic design know-how to add a bit of pizazz to my work which is rather mundane/meh for want of a better word :icon_dunno:
