    IE double margin/padding

    IE6 has a tendancy to double up margins/padding on floated elements inside elements and sometimes just for poops and giggles, I would suggest putting borders on your middle/right/left column and see if they overlap in IE6

    I would've done it using webtools but I really don't like CSS which isn't tabulated :P (sorry)

    I don't think this is the doubled margin bug in IE6, it's a variant of the 3px bug , caused by #rightcolumn (296px) and #centercolumn (346px) fitting exactly within #maincontent (642px). Fine with a browser that works correctly, but IE6 will add 3px, thus causing your float drop.

    Quick solution: add float:left to #centrecolumn.
