While one container around everything makes it possible to center the
page horizontally, two containers make it possible to center the page
vertically as well.

If we would go and change the structure once again, I'd even suggest the
following:

<body>
  <div id="percent-50">         -- center the page if desired
    <div id="wrap">             -- center the page if desired

      <div id="column-1">       -- Help with fixed TOC
        <div id="table-of-contents">
          the toc
        </div>
      </div>

      <div id="column-2">       -- Help with fixed TOC
        All the rest of the content goes here
      </div>

      <div id="postamble">
        postamble
      </div>

    </div>
  </div>
</body>



Having two boxes for the TOC would make the fixed TOC work in IE. In
general, I prefere to use two kinds of Boxes:

  - one for positioning, floating and so on. This one should have _no_
    padding or margin at all!
  - one for margin, padding, styling.

I found, this is the only way to reliably enforce a layout across
browsers.


column-1 and column-2 are for that very reason. All we can do to put the
TOC to the left or right is, to add margins to the body or the level 1
contents, and place it there. This is, what causes the problems with the
fixed TOC in IE. `column-1' and `column-2' (and `postamble') make it
possible, to adjust the layout in various common ways.

The `percent-50' (oh what a name) and `wrap' are just there, to be able
to center the whole page horizontally _and_ veritcally.


Best,
