the way I saw it (inspired by poc) was
col1: nav stuff relevent inside to the mode(the stuff with the 3d cube
icons) the user was i..categories etc
col2 : real content
col3: nav stuff related directely to the article - comments - related
articles -etc

I just want to know, and now I do but "where" is/are the second (and
potential 3rd) column in the html? Is it a first-child of the body, a
sibling along with #content inside a yet to be added container element
or a child of #content?

and where is the best place to snag the most recent HTML?

sorry about my lack of IRC'ing but I don't really get on with
it...(bad reason I know but  that's all I want to say)
