    What the heck just happened?!

    Apparently I edited something detramental for an e-newsletter. There are supossed to be three columns two 256 width and the center a 30px gutter. Everyone was playing nice yesterday, but I saved it in a rush before I left. Today it seems to have exploded and I can't get it back into shape. Where is the problem?

    Code:

          </big></big>Each wedding is unique in its
    essence and so are
    its flower
    arrangements. It reflects the personal preferences and style of the
    bride. These are some of the points about the arrangements.</p>
          <p>Flower
    arrangements include everything from the bridal bouquet to the central
    pieces in tables. There is no guide to proper flower arrangement.
    Anything personal would do the trick. Flower arrangement includes
    everything: the flowers, the colors, the greenery and the garnish.</p>
          <p>There
    are various things which can be incorporated in a flower arrangement.
    Small flowers can be attached to candles to create centerpieces. Flower
    buds can be arranged in bowls of water to be placed in the reception.
    Flowers can be attached to archways to indicate the entrance. The same
    color scheme can be followed throughout, including ribbons and beads
    according to mood, budget and style.</p>
          <p>Wedding flower arrangements
    can be added in areas like dressing rooms, guest room tables, reception
    table, gift table, church door handles and so forth.</p>
          <p>Choosing a
    good florist is very important. A florist whose general idea matches
    with the bride does tend to be more successful with last minute
    replacements. The choice of the bride and groom, the location, the
    color of the bride&rsquo;s and bridesmaids&rsquo; gown- all set
    the mood for a
    particular flower arrangement. Bouquets can be of many shapes and
    sizes, proportionate to the size of the person carrying it.</p>
          <p>Some of the most popular arrangements are:</p>
          <p>Round:
    sometimes called a &ldquo;colonial bouquet&rdquo;. This type
    has the flowers
    bunched together into a tight or loose cluster and can include formal
    or informal arrangements.</p>
          <p>Nosegay: A small round cluster of
    flowers, often not as dense as traditional round bouquets. It often
    includes more greenery and ribbon streamers.</p>
          <p>Cascade: sometimes
    called the teardrop or waterfall, this arrangement can give a
    &ldquo;wispy&rdquo;
    feel. Flowers with heavy blooms are arranged with flowing foliage.</p>
          <p>Biedermeier: A European-inspired bouquet with
    blossoms of different types and colors placed in a defined circular
    pattern.</p>
          <p>Heart:
    often seen at Valentine's Day, symbolizing love and romance. It is an
    alternatively shaped bouquet featuring two full, arched shapes at the
    top, while tapering down to a point at the bottom of the bouquet.</p>
          <p>Single
    stem: While not technically a bouquet, single-stem arrangements have
    gained in popularity in recent years, as simplicity has become the
    trend. Single-stem designs generally feature a unique design element,
    such as an intricately wrapped stem (for a long-stemmed flower),
    elaborate bow, streamers, or a decorative lace bloom collar (for a
    shorter-stemmed flower) to give the design more interest and appeal.</p>
          <p>Basket:
    flowers arranged and carried in a shallow basket and often used in a
    garden-like wedding setting, most often carried by young attendants.</p>
          <p>These are the basic popular wedding flowers
    arrangements. They are as unique as any individual wedding.</p>

    know to keep clean water in our fresh flower
    arrangements if we want them to last, but there are other things you
    can do to get the most out of your arrangements. You should keep your

    You can also buy&nbsp;flower preserve powder, which you can add to
    the water in your arrangement to keep the flowers fresh longer. </p>

    I think this is more a CSS problem than a XML problem. Moving to HTML/CSS forum.

    With eleven posts you're not that new here anymore, so you should slowly start using [CODE][/CODE] tags to post your code (there is even a button for that, marked with "#" in the posting window). The way it's now just makes the post unnecessarily long.

    Ah yes, sorry about that. It's been awhile since I posted here, and I had never posted a whole page worth of code.

    Anyway, I figured out what the problem was. This is what I get for playing with settings in my editor.

    when making updates to any file you should always do that to a copy of it. if you don't like the result you can just delete it and make another copy and start again. it's a pain in the butt but less so than starting over.
