Here is some revised code. If you run it in both communicator and IE4 I am
sure you will see what the problems are!! I believe IE comes closest to a
correct interpretation, but  you must be VERY careful with values (for
example try adding a border to the container, and see what happens!! I think
that if you are going to use side headers, tables are the way to go for the
next few months!!
