I think I am still doing something wrong...
I thought I fixed it by removing the last post with the too large image; reflowing the page correctly.
For instance here is my blog; with a smaller image; the page flows incorrectly with my right hand columns shoved under my left
Here is the previous day minus the image; the page flows correctly with three columns
When I place the image in the posts in Firefox it reflows the page again pushing the columns beneath - no matter how small I make the image it reflows the page.
And it is doing different things in different browsers
Firefox does not display the images that I had imported from blogspot
Safari shows the images
and Explorer shows boxes with x's as if they are missing.
Am I placing the image incorrectly? I am on a Mac. Here are the steps I used for the image on my most current post
1) browsed to the image: 'barn 2'; 64 k
2) enter the name: 'barn 2'
3) enter the description: perspective rendering, watercolor
5) use original
6) linked to page
7) send to editor
8) reduce size of image by pulling in the corner to a medium size
this pushes the right hand columns under the left hand ones
