This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Not sure what the layout requirements are, but don't you just want to have a three-column design? Why are the first two div's grouped together? At first glance I would just remove the group and float all the three div's to left.
The advice you've given me has solved most of my problems.
A little issue still stands, the code posted above fits into a bigger snippet of code, where I have to reset the margin by -36%, see HTML below, CSS is as per Eric's post
This works perfectly with FireFox. In IE7 the margin is incorrect, in the sense that it seems more like -40% - how could I rectfy this problem?
If I use the exact code above In FF and IE7 the page I get is slightly different. (in FireFox I see HA2, In in IE7 I see AHA2 - in the top left box )? Is this just me or something more to do with the browsers?
Sorrry for the convaluted message.

Issue you are probably having is one browser has a scrollbar visible and the other does not.
% can be really strange with browsers, especially their behavior with odd widths.

Is there anyway I can state, if its IE7, do a different margin to other browsers etc.?
