Sounded to me like maybe the problem might be that you are using 
absolute positioning? Specifiying a height on the div, but the content 
exceeds the height? What happens if you do not use positioning, or do 
not set the height of the divs, or remove the div tags and use the 
normal document flow? What happens if you set the divs' CSS property
