Hello.  I have a similar problem, but I am using tables.  I can get the 
page to display correctly in Netscape/IE but not Safari.  Is there 
anyway to accomplish something like, but by using tables?  I am not 
sure why Safari will not display the middle row with columns properly.
Thanks in advance.

<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" 
			<tr height="75">
				<td bgcolor="#9f9f9f" height="75">header</td>
					<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" 
							<td valign="top" bgcolor="#dedede" width="185">side</td>
							<td valign="top">middle</td>
							<td valign="top" bgcolor="#dedede">side</td>
			<tr height="5%">
				<td bgcolor="#9f9f9f" height="5%">footer</td>
