Just to let everyone know...

The column bug will *only* be solved either by floating the columns 
(they are currently positioned) or by changing the layout so that the 
footer doesn't go across all the columns. Since we're trying to stick 
with Isaac's design as much as possible, I've changed the CSS layout to 
floats ( http://taracleveland.com/evolt/testcolumns/homepage.html and 
http://taracleveland.com/evolt/testcolumns/contact.html ).

Of course, going from absolute positioning to floats causes other bugs. 
Elfur in her "spare" time is working away at solving those, which is 
why this particular bug isn't off the list yet.

/me is trying to save other people the hassle of suggesting fixes and 
testing fixes that won't work ;-).
