What about the following, using CSS Positioning:

div.col1 { position: absolute; left: 1%; width: 31% }
div.col2 { position: absolute; left: 35%; width: 48% }
div.col3 { position: absolute; left: 70% }

and then

<DIV CLASS=col1>
<!-- Column 1 -->
</DIV>
<DIV CLASS=col2>
<!-- Column 2 -->
</DIV>
<DIV CLASS=col3>
<!-- Column 3 -->
</DIV>

Or is that not what you meant?
