Glen,

Thanks for the info! I posted it to http://webdesign.meetup.com/396/pages/CSS_Positioning_Tutorials_on_the_Web/ so
that we have it for the future. Any of yall that want, can post there. I will look at that method later on and see about
incorporating it into what I am doing. Because the next thing I want is to have the characters to be on the bottom of
the page, rather than the top..or one at the top and another at the bottom, with some kind of perspective. But for
now I think, at least my positioning skills are jumping again. Just like you this has always been an issue for me as
well.

Joe,
 
I was reading through the posts on the Ed Eliot link you emailed and there is one by a gentleman named Mathew James Taylor.  Mr. Taylor offers another solution for same height columns that is:
1. Simpler
2. Needs no browser-specific hacks!
3. Doesn't use JS
4. Is flexible for almost any layout or design
5. Has been tested in virtually every browser
6. Validates as XHTML 1.0 Strict
7. Doesn't need any background images
8. Furthers SEO
9. Can be accomplished using pixels, ems or percentages
 
This particular topic has always been an issue for me and I just wanted to share what I found.  Mathew James Taylor's solutions can be found at http://matthewjamestaylor.com/blog/ultimate-multi-column-liquid-layouts-em-and-pixel-widths.  There are many other valuable examples and solutions on his website that our CSS / HTML members may find valuable!
 
Thanks for all your work and help!
