Thank you to everybody for the suggestions you posted with regard to ideas for the last-minute portfolio revamp. I've got all of my content set up and my pages planned out, now my only problem is the fact that I can't get my page layout to look the way I'd like.

It should look like this:

However, I can't seem to pull it off. Both Firefox and IE are giving me different results and I'm sure I'm missing something small. I'm just not sure what it is. The page itself is located at http://www.debbierussell.ca/v2/portfolio/ and the CSS code is embedded in the page for now. I'll be making it an external stylesheet as soon as I have it working properly.

All help is appreciated. Thanks again!

Update: I've played around with it so that it's looking roughly correct in IE. However, Firefox is still looking lopsided with the far right column being larger than the far left one. The major annoyance for me at the moment though, is the fact that I can't get the text in Right Menu to be left-aligned.

Suggestions? Page location is still the same and the CSS is still embedded in the top for now.

Looks allright to me. There will almost always be *some* mismatch between Firefox and IE, but on the whole this all looks fine to me - good, clean, clear uncluttered code. What, in particular, is the problem?

There are a couple of things which are relatively small, but enough to aggravate me.

I'd like the text in the Right Menu to be Left aligned within its section and in Firefox the layout looks lopsided, with the left and right columns being uneven. I think I played with it enough so that it looks roughly even in IE now. Firefox is the troublemaker.

FF & IE will be handling those margins and padding slightly differently. Not sure that you need to set those side margins on the content div. PageBody seems pretty redundant - the less nesting the better, imho. Looks pretty good to me on Mac FF.
