Hi guys!

Just wondering if this is an easy fix, otherwise I'll just switch the layout to a table.

site: [teamspeak.gyorn.com...]

I want all three columns to expand vertically to the size of the largest column. As of right now it's set up using CSS and I would prefer to keep it that way, but if switching the layout to tables would be much easier, I would be happy to do that too.

Thanks for the help in advance!

This is literally the classic problem, and the subject of the 'challenge' thread. In short, use tables. I'm surprised your layout works in IE, without placing the document in standards mode.

Hhmmmm not in IE6. It looks like your left div is being caught on the right side of your floated menu (needs to be cleared).

OK in FF I presume? Where all 3 columns look the same size. Is that what you require? All 3 columns look the same size, or all columns actually are the same size?
