    What's the problem with my CSS?

    Hi there,

    I'm trying to code this:

    link

    and my code is this:

    CSS -

    Code:
    #container {
     width: 870px;
     height: 720px;
     margin: 0 auto;
    }
    
    #leftColumn {
     float: left;
     width: 218px;
     height: 720px;
     background-color: #fff;
    }
    
    #rightColumn {
     float: left;
     width: 652px;
     height: 720px;
     background-color: #c2df91;
    }
    XHTML -
    Code:
                                          <!-- CONTAINER BEGINS -->
    
    				<div id="container">
    			
    			<!-- LEFTCOLUMN BEGINS -->
    		
    					<div id="leftColumn">
    
    					</div>
    
    			<!-- LEFTCOLUMN ENDS, RIGHTCOLUMN BEGINS -->
    
    					<div id="rightColumn">
    
    					</div>
    
    			<!-- RIGHTCOLUMN ENDS -->
    
    				</div>
    
    			<!-- CONTAINER ENDS -->
    but all I'm getting in a browser is a blank screen.

    Am I missing something completely obvious? :\

    Thanks!

    Strange..

    Surely if the divs have a set height and width, they'll display whether there's content in them or not?

    The container div is there, and when I give it a background colour, that displays correctly..

    Hi, the problem was probably a validation error (most likely in your CSS, doubtful in the HTML though still possible ).

    Glad you solved it, and sorry we took so long to try and help
