Problem with JQuery UI - Tab panel position

I am trying different page variations with the JQuery UI library and I am running into some problems with columns, whether they are generated using CSS or tables.  The position of the tab panel (where the content for each tab is) seems to be relative to the bottom of the div or table in the same area.  Changing the positioning of the column and the tab panel has yielded no solution and I have also tried assigning a high z-index value with no luck.  Does anyone know how to get that tab panel to appear right under the tabs as it is suppose and not at the bottom of the column?

Thanks for you help.
#outerWrapper #contentWrapper #rightColumn1 {
	float: right;
	padding: 10px 0 0 0;
	clear: right;
	width: 260px;
	margin: -20px -9px 0 0px;
	position: relative;
	z-index: 99999;
}
 
.ui-tabs-panel {
	font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
	clear:both;
	border-top: 1px solid #97a5b0;
	padding: 0px;
	font-size: 1.14em;
	line-height: 20px;
	position:relative;
	z-index: 25;
}

In tables --

<TABLE valign="top">
<TD valign="top">

in CSS --

DIV { text-align:top; vertical-align:top; }
TABLE { text-align:top; vertical-align:top; }
TD { text-align:top; vertical-align:top; }

I appreciate the comment scrathcyboy but it seems that did not resolve the issue.  It seems to be an issue with the tab panel position being relative to the bottom of the right column (which is a DIV).  I have tired different position properties but they all remove the DIV from being relative to the container its held in.

Sorry I missed the link earlier.

The tabs themselves are fine where they are.  I would like the information they contain to wrap around the right column that I have instead of started at the bottom of it.

Hokay, FINALLY found a fix for this!

.ui-tabs-nav {
      float:left;
    list-style: none;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0 0 0 2px;
      margin:0 0 0 0px;
}

.ui-tabs-panel {
      font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
      clear:left;
      border-top: 1px solid #97a5b0;
      padding: 0px;
      font-size: 1.14em;
      line-height: 20px;
      position:relative;
      z-index: 25;
}



That should do it
