Why need the tool

Many websites adopt 3 columns layout design. There are two technologies to achieve the multicolumn layout design. One is using tables, which could be easily adopted by beginners. But tables are not as easy and flexible when you have more contents to add or animations to develop. What is the most popular way is using layers plus CSS code. You could easily find various templetes on the web. But the template is not easy to use too because when you have to adjust the width of one column, the other columns are messed up.

This online tool helps you to get your css code in the real time and achieve WYSIWYG. After you have tried this tool, you know why the templates are not enough because a usable layout of css code falls into only a limited band. It's just like carefully tuning a short wave radio to find wanted channels.
