I'm working on customizing a 3-column template called Elements of Seo (http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/elements-of-seo#post-153) but when I changed the over-all content width in style.css from 960 to 1005 it caused some problems.
I also changed "#contentleft" width from 455 to 502 because I display all images in posts at 500pixels width.. hence this change was necessary.
So basically those are the only two things I changed.. every instance of 960 pixel width, I changed to 1005, and changed the #contentleft to 500 as mentioned.
The two sidebar widths were not edited.
For some reason this produced the desired effect in Mozilla Firefox but not when using Internet Explorer. In IE it bumps the second sidebar below the first.
You can view this problem if you using both browsers by going to http://www.thelaf.net/97/
Thanks so much for any help you can provide....
