Margin control for layout grid: the side-menu problem

  1. description:

using the column layout grid for a side-menu layout, it would seem helpful to have the possibility of a variably-sized column, or to specify right/left margins [as opposed to merely gutter widths]

Here this shows how the right margin collapses, when using the right aligned option, to allow for a left-side-menu width (formerly center alignment- which created margins by virtue of overall width).
