Move Width of Fluid/Static Columns from JS to CSS

An Idea

As the Javascript files have to be loaded, then run, before the column width is impacted, it has a (often very) notable delay that could easily be avoided

With the power of CSS and rendering engines combined, I banish thee, Javascript. A rather simple suggestion. It should be possible to set, or at the very least approximate, the width of the columns with CSS, saving the mentioned delay where the columns go way past the width of the screen. This delay is especially notable on slower connections, but should be visible on fast connections too. Nothing big, obviously, but it's worth the work in my opinion.

    User stylesheets would also have an easier time existing.
