    3 Content Boxes - Coding Troubles

    Hi, this has been bothering and limiting me for a while now so I was wondering if somone here can help me get this mastered!

    I created a little sample web template with 3 content boxes, I sliced them as shown in the below pic:

    I then went on to code them, setting the images to backgrounds for the content boxes ect.. The problem occurs when I add too much content into the long content box on the right side. The other two boxes on the left 'break apart' and a space is visible. Here is what I mean:

    Here I Uploaded it:

    Does anyone know why this happens? Is it a slicing error or a html coding error? How can I fix this? Any help is much appreciated, I sincerly thank everyone that helps me with this. Thanks!

    I think it's fair to say that this is an html error - namely that you have a very 20th-century-style tables-for-layout spacer-gif no-dtd type page...
    You can fix it by learning how to use css for your layout and general styling. Start by reading the article in my sig.

    Good luck.
