Yep, the title is right!

All I want is a method for getting IE to display 2 divs in a row, the l/r to be 200px wide, the center fluid.

The only stipulations are that all three stretch to 100%, (usually easy in IE), and that the HTML order is L C R.....
so floating seems off in this case!

Please assist.... I'm sick to death of non-compliant browsers and far-fetched layouts.... I've got a layout working in NN6+ and MFF 1.1+..... all I need is one for IE, and if I have to use a seperate/different CSS sheet, then stuff it, I will!

<div id="main">
 
	 <div id="left" style="float:left; width:200px">
 
	 </div>
 
	 <div id="right" style="float:right; width:200px">
 
	 </div>
 
	 <div id="center">
 
	 </div>
 
</div>

Sorry, obviously I typed out so fast I failed to put enough details in!

I require a 3 column layout......
*strict xhtml
*header & footer seperate from the content block with the 3 cols.
*each column must stretch vertically to match the longest column.
*the left and right columns need to be of fixed width.
*the central column needs to be fluid.
*the html / source order needs to be Left Center Right

I only need this for IE, as I have a decent copy for other browsers... I just seem unable to get this running right in strict xhtml for IE.

Hope that makes more sense.
