    shifting columns with larger screen area

    Hi I'm having a problem with the colums on my site. They all display properly when the screen area is 800 x 400. However, if I make this any larger the left hand column expands dramatically. How do I prevent this from happening.

    If you go to www.imbamatombo.co.zw you will see what I mean if you adjust the screen size. The left hand column containing the buttons expands horribly. I am using dreamweaver and have tried reducing the % of the column width but to no avail.

    Does anyone have any advice?

    The reason this is causing you problems is because you have the left hand column set to a variable width of 86% and the right hand column set to a fixed width of 662px.

    Because the left hand column is set to a percentage, it will resize itself to fit the browser whereas the right hand column will always be 662px wide regardless of the resolution.

    The best solution would be to give the left hand column a fixed with which is just right for the navigation, then set the right hand column to 100%.
