Hi Drew,

I removed the 45% margin from #right but this still never worked:

This is what i did:
Before:* #right{width:45%; background-color:#00FF00; padding:0; margin:0 0 0 45%;}
*After:* #right{width:45%; background-color:#00FF00; padding:0; margin:0;}

Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this? I dont want to resort to tables to get a 50% 50% 2 column stretching layout.

Im a novice with CSS/XHTML, but i feel im picking it up fast, but this simple layout i cant seem to do.

    Hi Tom,

    Thanks for that solution, but unfortunately it doesnt work,
    because i get a horizontal scrollbar at the bottom of the page, in
    both Firefox and IE. Does anyone else have any solutions for this?

    This worked for me:

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;
    <title>Untitled Document</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    #main{width:100%; padding:0 50px 0 50px; margin:0;}
    #left{width:45%; background-color:#FF0000; padding:0; margin:0;
    #right{width:45%; background-color:#00FF00; padding:0; margin:0 0
    0 45%;}


<div id="main">
<div id="left">&nbsp;<br></div>
<div id="right">&nbsp;<br></div>

Remove the 45% margin #right and it will work fine. drew
