Good afternoon!

I have an containment problem.

If you view the web page http://www.topekagms.org/redesign/ using a browser width more than 1200px, all looks well. However, if you scrunch the width to less than 1200px, the entire right-hand container disappears below the sidebar. The header and footer are behaving like they should.

What I'm trying to accomplish is a fixed-width (180px) sidebar and a scaling right-hand column.

With this in mind, I have two questions:

1: How do I fix the issue of the right-hand side dropping below the sidebar at less than 1200px?

2: How do I set a minimum width before a scroll bar appears at the bottom? (I don't want to right column to shrink to less than, say, 500px.)

I have an additional question, as well: If I jink the type sizes too much, the text in the right column will overflow the sides of the container. How do I make sure that the text will remain contained regardless of the size?

I've been testing this using IE10, FireFox, Chrome, and Safari (on an iPad).

Any help would be appreciated.
