Yup, dammit,
I should really be shot for that mistake. (o:

It's currently stretching to the size of the containing DIV.
I'd like it to only be as wide as the larget element inside it.

I'd like it like this:

| a                    |
| b                    |
| cccccccccccccccccccc |
| d                    |

And it would shrink to fit the content.

I hope i've explained myself.
