HTML/CSS geniuses: Having problems with CSS and three-column layout on my blog
Okay, here's the situation, and I'm hoping someone can help.

I just switched to a new template, one that utilizes three columns instead of the former two that I used. I did it using PsycHo's template builder (http://psyc.horm.org ), which utilizes DIV tags instead of tables, and is optimized for Firefox.

Well, in Firefox, it looks pretty good. All three columns are aligned as they should (though a bit uneven, which I'm in the process of fixing. See for yourself:

Only problem is, I pulled it up in IE, and it looks like hell. The second column starts way down the page, right below the first. They don't line up. I tried to use a hack that PsycHo recommended (the overflow: hidden; tag) but it doesn't work. I also toned down the width of the columns. No dice.

Anyone know what I'm doing wrong, and what I can do to make this thing look decent in IE, short of strangling Bill Gates? I'm losing what's left of my mind. Please help!

1. Looks OK in Safari on a Mac, FWIW
the gap between the middle and right columns is about 3/4 inch, compared to almost no gap between the left and middle, but other than that, it's golden.

2. The gap is temporary
I've been trying to adjust the column size to try to fit them in IE. Still a work in progress.

Glad to hear it shows up well on Safari. No problems with Firefox either. It's just this damned IE7 rendering that's driving me nuts.
