Sorry to bug you again, Stu. I fixed the problem I had earlier and everything was rendering perfectly. I went through and validated the page and it passed (after a few minor typos were fixed). I moved the CSS to an external stylesheet and made some minor changes, or so I thought. Now I'm back to having the borders on top of everything in IE...

Would it be too much to ask for you to take a look at the problem again?

I'd appreciate any advice you have.

Hi, I did a layout very similar to yours (Layout 3)but it didn´t work under IE. After downloading your site it´s working either with Firefox or IE...why? How can I get it done? Cheers

Puh, now I found out how to get it done myself...why does this always happen after I posted my probs? If you like you might just delete everything, please.

Beautiful concept, works perfect for me in IE. But in Mozilla en firefox i've got problems i don't understand. The css is valid.

It has probably to do with the right-box (position:absolute). Is there a solution for this? And may be also for the i-frame-construction (reserveer). I used it before without problems (width=100%) but in this site it's not working correct.

The site I'm talking about is: (it's in dutch, but the css and html in English..:)

The problem is solved. I added width:800px to #content. Now the scrollbar is shown. width:100% doesn't show the scrollbar at all, so scrolling is not possible.
Very nice lay out!

Hi Stuart, I like your layout and am planning on using it on my website, but I have a question, is it possible to control the width of the text in the content area to avoid too long sentences? I can't figure that out on my own...

Peter, the text in the content area will word wrap if the sentence is too long, so there should be no need to control the width.

Hello again and apologies for not being precise enough. What I meant was that on monitors with a high resolution, I want to avoid that a sentence gets too long. I would like the sentences to word wrap if nescessary, but at the same time I want to make sure that sentences don't get any longer than for instance 15 centimeters on a screen with a high resolution, is that possible?
