I recently recoded my default page to utilize the three-column layout that Ron at bluerobot.com developed. I really like it, except that I don't like how the beta (right) div will slide behind the center section and out of view when the browser window size is changed. So, what I want to know is how to keep it from doing that. I only want the right-side column to move to the right-side margin boundary of the center section and stop right there! I do not want any overlapping at all. That way too, when someone with a minimized browser window opens up my page, they won't see what looks like a garbled center column (because of the right-side column sitting behind). I've tried adjusting the z-indexes, but it doen't do the trick. I am also leary of changing the code too much because I don't want to affect the way the page displays in NS. I've emailed Rob at bluerobot but I haven't heard anything for quite some time. Can any of you in the know give me a hand? You can visit my page HERE, and the CSS follows:

###########################################

/* The 3 Column Page Layout Starts Here */

.Content>p {margin:0px;}
.Content>p+p {text-indent:20px;}

.Content1>p {margin:0px;}
.Content1>p+p {text-indent:20px;}

/* All the content boxes belong to the content class. */

.content {
position:relative; /* Position is declared "relative" to gain control of stacking order (z-index). */
width:auto;
min-width:120px;
margin:0px 210px 5px 170px;
border:1px solid black;
background-color:white;
padding:10px;
z-index:3; /* This allows the content to overlap the right menu in narrow windows in good browsers. */
}

.content1 {
position:relative; /* Position is declared "relative" to gain control of stacking order (z-index). */
width:auto;
min-width:120px;
margin:0px 210px 5px 170px;
border:none;
background-color:white;
padding:none;
z-index:3; /* This allows the content to overlap the right menu in narrow windows in good browsers. */
}

#navAlpha {
position:absolute;
width:140px;
top:20px;
left:20px;
border:1px dashed black;
background-color:#eee;
padding:5px;
z-index:2;

/* Here is the ugly brilliant hack that protects IE5/Win from its own stupidity.
Thanks to Tantek Celik for the hack and to Eric Costello for publicizing it.
IE5/Win incorrectly parses the "\"}"" value, prematurely closing the style
declaration. The incorrect IE5/Win value is above, while the correct value is
below. See http://glish.com/css/hacks.asp for details. */

voice-family: "\"}\"";
voice-family:inherit;
width:128px;
}

/* I've heard this called the "be nice to Opera 5" rule. Basically, it feeds correct
length values to user agents that exhibit the parsing error exploited above yet get
the CSS box model right and understand the CSS2 parent-child selector. ALWAYS include
a "be nice to Opera 5" rule every time you use the Tantek Celik hack (above). */

body>#navAlpha {width:128px;}

#navBeta {
position:absolute;
font-size:8pt;
width:190px;
top:20px;
right:10px;
border:1px dashed black;
background-color:#eee;
padding:5px;
z-index:1;
/* Again, the ugly brilliant hack. */
voice-family: "\"}\"";
voice-family:inherit;
width:148px;
}

/* Again, "be nice to Opera 5". */

body>#navBeta {width:148px;}
