OK, thank you for your help earlier. It enabled me to put this

together. If you take a look though, I have some weird things going on!

Strange thing number 1.
This maybe just my machine, Win XP SP2 IE6, but some times the DIVS don't show up. If you hit refresh, certain DIVS show and some don't. The rightcol DIV doesn't seem to show at all until you drag the cursor over the whole page??

Strange thing number 2.
As soon as I put content into rightcol div, I get a space between it and the div above it. With no content, it marries up to the other DIV just fine.

The CSS:

body {
padding:0;
margin:10px 10px 10px 10px;
background-color:#FFFFFF;
font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size:100%;
height:100%;
}

#wrapper {
padding:0;
margin:0;
width:auto;
background-color:#EFF2F5;
}

#topbanner {
padding:0;
margin:0;
background-color:#FFF;
width:auto;
}

#uppernav {
padding:3px 0 5px 215px;
margin:0;
width:auto;
}

#lowernav {
padding:5px 0 5px 208px;
margin:0;
width:auto;

}

#leftcol {
padding:0;
margin:0;
width:200px;
float:left;
}

#pageheader {
padding:10px 0 10px 0;
margin:0;
}

#maincol {
width:450px;
float:left;
padding:0 0 0 15px;
}

#rightcol {
background-color:#FF00FF;
}

#footer {
margin:0;
padding:15px 0 0 0;
clear:both;
}

Once again, any help is appreciated.

many thanks.

Shaun

3 column IE strange problems??

I just today had a similar problem with IE's disappearing tricks. This might have solution for your Strange thing number 1:

Btw. when you reduce the window (in width and in IE6) until the purple and pink DIVs disappear and then use the menu you get white blocks appearing. It might be related to the same disappearing trick.

good luck, nice site,
