Try this:

.table2 {
    float: left;
    width: 200px;
}
.table3{
    float: right;
    width: 200px;
}
.table1{
    margin-left: 200px; /* requires at least table2 width */
    margin-right: 200px; /* requires at least table3 width */
}

First of all, you have to define the widths of the classes ".table1, .table2 and .table3" and float ".table2" and "table3" to their respective sides, just like Zero has showed above.
As for ".table1", I'd suggest you to do the following -

.table1 {
    width:200px; /* width depends */
    margin:0 auto; /* brings the div to the center of the page */
}

The code I gave above is useful (imo) even if the width of "#container" is defined or not. It brings the div of class ".table1" to the center, while ".table2" is floated to left and ".table3" is floated to right. BUT, the width of the "#container" shouldn't be less than the width of ".table2" and ".table3" summed up.

But, to use the code Zero has provided above, you'll have to define the width of "#container" to 600px to get the div of class ".table1" to the center. If the width is lesser or greater than 600px, then the divs will either stack up one above another, or ".table1" div won't be exactly at the center of the other two.

Hope this helped.

Another sure way is to use Zero13 Code and add after table1 <br style="clear: both;" />
