It looks like there are two triggers. The oddly-overflowing blue
background can be contained in the correct column by adding "zoom:1"
to your #outer rule, and the background is further contained in the
right parts of that column by adding "zoom: 1" to your .maincolumn
I noticed that the blue was leaking out of the main area of your site.
I figured it would have to be an issue with the basic layout, so
started applying triggers from the outside in. Applying the first
layout trigger to outer got the main content column in place, but its
contents were still wacky, which is what made me think it was a
problem with that content as well.
Typically I attack hasLayout issues by starting at the outermost
container that looks like it isn't containing its contents like it
should, then work my way in.
