Hi ,
I have a template in dreamweaver with a right column. On my home page I would like this home page right column hidden and the text on middle column(main content) to use this space instead.

How do i hide a certain column for a page with a template?

body{
margin:0;
padding:0;
line-height: 1.5em;
background-color :#dadbe5;
text-align:center;


}
#maincontainer
{
  max-width:980px;
   margin:auto;
 background-color :white;
}

#MainContentArea{
        float: left;
      	width:56%;
		margin-left:2%;
		margin-right:2%;
		text-align:left;
}
	
	
#leftcolumn{
        float: left;
/*        background-color:Green;*/
        height:600px;;
		float: left;
		width: 20%; /*Width of left column in percentage*/
		background-color:#dadbe5;
		/* visibility:hidden;*/
}

#rightcolumn{
        float: left;
        background:rgb(204,255,51);
        color:Black;
/*		border:1px solid #000000;*/
        height:600px;;
		float: left;
		width: 19.8%; /*Width of right column in pixels*/
		color:Black;
		
}

Why not omit the right column on the first page altogether?

I think you want to manage the space but leave it blank in home page. So you can add a class for home like:

#rightcolumn{
        float: left;
        background:rgb(204,255,51);
        color:Black;
/*		border:1px solid #000000;*/
        height:600px;;
		float: left;
		width: 19.8%; /*Width of right column in pixels*/
		color:Black;
		
}

.homepagerightcol{
 visibility:hidden;
}

Call the class in home page like:
<div id="rightcolumn" class="homepagerightcol">
//Content
</div>

jagadishdulal:  would your solution expand the main column?  I was under the impression   jagguy wanted that.

Instead of visibility, you need to use display:none to take it out of the flow.
