From your code in the last post, this is how I see it:
Using a 'container' is a good thing but mixing absolute and relative positioning is not. Absolute positioning 'pins' a div to an exact location in the browser window but it does not interact with any other divs on the page. Relative and static positioning use surrounding elements to position themselves. Relative and static positioning are prefered as the page width and height will adjust to different sizes of users windows. It is a tricky subject but if you need some more tips, let me know and I'll be happy to help out.

On the use of tables...
Tables are NOT recommended and going down the path of css positioning IS highly recommended. The table tag was not created to line up page items, it was created to present tablular data. Web devs (like myself) used this as a hack to line up elements with bloated, unreadable, and unmaintanable code. It does take some time to jump ship to CSS, but this is the future of developing pages on the Internet.
And on the W3C...
W3C’s site houses a collection of proposals, drafts, and Recommendations, written by geeks for geeks. And when I say geeks, I don’t mean ordinary web professionals like you and me. I mean geeks who make the rest of us look like Grandma on the first day She’s Got Mail.™

But I need to get this page to display. That has to be the most important thing. It's never going to be W3C compliant because of all the Bravenet code that's in there, but I can definitely clean it up (I've already removed about 75% of the errors that were in there), even if I have to resort to tables.

And I tried Ron's suggestion regarding those separate settings for IE and other browsers, and that didn't make a difference in any browser. It's just wacky, in my professional opinion
I bet that once the problem is discovered, it's going to be something really stupid that I overlooked.

hah. It's common situation when IE do not care about standart.
That is strange how the left column fills in Mozilla but not in IE.
