Thanks, John. I'm rying to replicate a newsletter my (highly resistant to change) community publishes. A sample of the current one is at http://www.fearringtonfha.org/images/newsletters/JulAug2011%20newsletter.pdf
My current effort is at http://www.fearringtonfha.org/newsletter/planbt.pdf
. (Does not contain all the content of the original.)
What I'd like to do is have the stuff on the front page (may vary in length) be printed in a single column, and the rest, up to the Calendar, printed in two-column format. I't like to set off the different sections (front page, "What's Going On in Fearrington", "Fearrington Cares", etc.) with a full-page-wide title separating each section's content.
I was about to start a new tactic, having different <div class='twocol'>'s for the content, with an <h2>What's Going On...</h2> page-wide separating the sections.
If you think this approach will work, just point me in that direction and I'll try it out. If it won't, I'd certainly appreciate any workarounds you can offer.
The higher level overview is that we run a Joomla-based web site and would like to have our newsletter built for emailing using the Joomla component Acymailing, and be able to take the HTML from Acymailing, tweak it, and send it to the printer for the 1/3 of our population who don't have computers or computer skills and prefer paper-flavored news.
We have a couple of newsletter editors who have been doing an OK job (we're all volunteers, so don't complain too much) but would like to move toward a more electronic distribution where possible.
