I have spent sufficienttime fixing the problem someone else did to my lovely templates, except for this one odd positioning problem. IE does what I want it to look like (horror of all horror) but Mozilla (win 1.7.8) does not. Its rather odd.

I'm not harping when I say this, but I'm honestly suggesting something that might help: fix your code. Since you're using XHTML Strict, you need to close all your tags (your <img> and <br> tags, specifically). Another option is to change your doctype to HTML transitional. Here's the validation report for your page as it is, and here's the validation report for your page if it were HTML trans. Big difference. The main reason I'm suggesting this in your case is that I've seen instances where writing HTML under an XHTML doctype confuses modern browsers.

Will this solve your problem? I don't know. But it will help.

I thought I had closed my br et all, but infact I did not.
I just want a 3 row 1 colum design.
