Could you make a simplified version of the page, showing just the 3
column layout with a header in each column and put only the used
styles in the head so that its quicker and easier for us to help you
debug it.

Also where did you get the layout from? looks like you are using
floats, negative margins and absolute positioning, which will be
impossible to clear the content if it is longer than the other
