... Andrew keeps pushing this proposal of his again and again and again ...

The CSS2 solution is:

   html     {height: 100%; display: table;}
   body                   {display: table-row;)
   #left, #middle, #right {display: table-cell;}
   #left    {width: 100px;}
   #right   {width: 200px;}

This fulfills all your requirements except:

| serve the columns in what ever order I wish.
