Introducing Ionic, a CSS framework put together to specifically handle layouts with more than 2 columns in CSS.

The framework, originally written by Jason under the name ‘fluid1’, has been used on our client’s website,, since 2005. The aim of the project was to make it accessible to all the common browsers, whilst keeping the HTML markup as semantic as possible.

Currently the script only supports a maximum of 3 columns, but there is no reason why the algorithm can’t be extended to support any number of columns.

Ionic has its own microsite under development where you’ll be able to grab the latest releases and find out more about the framework. The link is:
