Hi, Tim :-)
Thanks! I was up early today (anyone else got dogs that conspire??? three
dogs, one cat...I swear they take turns getting up early!) and was just
finishing up when your post came through...
I just uploaded my latest results. What I did was add a second container div
(around the two menus and the content) with relative positioning and then
position the second menu (that currently appears to the right) absolutely to
Opera 6/WinXP still displays the central section shorter than the left menu,
but everything else seems to be cooperating.
So the question is...how "bad" is it to do it like this? Here's the main
div anchor (container div for all pieces to horizontally center the page)
div anchorleft (container div for menus and content)
div menuone (floated left menu) - closed
div menutwo (absolutely positioned right menu) - closed
div contents (page text) - closed
The CSS validates as CSS2 and almost as CSS1...the top and left of menutwo
aren't valid CSS1...
If I've missed something (which is highly likely...I've searched the
archives and Wiki and various sites, but start losing track of all the
info), please let me know :-) I've got multiple copies of everything, so I
can try Tim's suggestion if this solution is way off base.
Thanks very much to all who have helped :-) I really appreciate it!
