Page layout with CSS with Header, footer, left content, and right content

I have an asp.net 2.0 application. I need to have a page setup with a header of 75px height width 100%, constently set at the top (not moving). A footer of 25px height width 100%, constently set at the bottom of the screen ( not moving). The main content area is setup in a left pane and a right pane. The left is 23% wide and 100% high, the right pane is 70% wide and 100% high. Both the left pane and right pane can scroll if needed but must do it between the header and footer. I need this to be cross browser compliant and able to adjust to screen size setttings. I have done a lot of research online looking for this I can get the header and footer set. However the main content right and left pane are giving me problems as well as screen size settings. Any help you can give me would be great.

If you can describe the kind of problems you are having as well as provide the base code for the page I think a solution could be found.

Problems:

1. The left and right pane's are scrolling together I need them to scroll only if each is needed.
2. The data is scrolling within the header and footer fine at one resolution however if I open the same page on a different monitor with a different resolution the scorlling is incorrect it is overlapping the footer.

Code:
I will below have the code for the master.page, an individual page, and the css file.
****master.page****

Can you post a link to where this page is running? I don't have a ASP server model to test your css and markup on.

Sorry this is only on a local machine right now. And our company is behind a serious firewall. Really makes it hard to work sometimes.
