I've decided that its just gotta happen. I'm going to start designing in all css. I have moderate experience and knowledge of it, but now I'm starting to use it for layout and positioning. How do I make this layout work in both ie, and netscape (6)/mozilla?

<h3>Getting the Lay of the Land</h3>
<p>We can look at Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) from a number of
contextual perspectives. I prefer to view them as a
correction to a fundamental mistake that was made at the
beginning of Web Time, back in the old days of the mid-1990's
when Tim Berners-Lee and a subsequent phalanx of Web builders
first envisioned the beginnings of the Web.</p>
<p>What was that mistake?</p>
</div>

<div class="content">
<h3>CSS in Context</h3>
<p>Almost as soon as the Web became popular, graphic designers
began noticing what they saw as a fundamental flaw: the
method by which a Web browser displayed information in HTML
files was not within the designers' control. No, it was the
users who were in primary charge of how the Web pages they
visited would appear on their systems.</p>
</div>
<div class="content">
<h3>Keep Adding Content</h3>
<p>You can see that as you keep adding content to this page, it
adds nicely boxed and centered material down the center of
the page.</p>
</div>

<div id="navright">
<h3>Why CSS is Better</h3>
<p>Style sheets allow you to separate content from its
presentation, which leads to pages that are more easily
reproduced as templates for other pages and to vastly easier
maintenance. Smaller file sizes, fewer place-holder graphics,
and faster load times are some of the other benefits of CSS.</p>

Looks to me like it works in Firebird.

oh, sorry slime:

page.

Problem I'm having in netscape/mozilla is that the other div's are lapping over the container div...

using the header div as an example, it's actual width is 622px and the container is set to 602px. The diference is the 10px of padding to the header, 10 left and 10 right equals 20 more on your width.

the original box model hack page explains your problem well. There's other hacks that give the same result but that page will explain the need for it.
