I am getting large amounts of whitespace in my layout, sometimes. I can't figure out why this is happening. Anyone have any ideas what's going on?

I'm using some javascript that parses xml to generate my rss feeds on the right hand side of the page, the problems seem to stem from that box.

here are the links

*in the middle of the body of tutorials page there is whitespace coming from nowhere?

*the layout of my page

CSS- Can't Set Straight

Hi

Compare it in IE to Mozilla and conclude you have an IE bug causing the whitespace. Where the right bar pushes the middle block leftwards is the 3px jog bug.

See www.positioniseverything.net for many bug solutions.

Also, in Mozilla, the right bar drops down to clear the bottom of the left bar.

This is probably because of padding or margins not leaving enough room. To de-bug put borders around your divs (diff colors) and see where they are.
