Having an issue I'm not sure can be fixed. Hoping someone here can help me.

When I style the outter DIV's with:
border-left: 1px solid #000;

Open in new window


the lines on the left don't line up:

left-borders-not-lined-up
I'll try different pixel sizes and stuff but it doesn't seem to fix it.
Something I should change?

Cool thanks, I'm trying it out

Only thing is it adds scrollbars to the container after that

Should I increase the with of each div?

Change the widths on the inner div's to 100% and not 900px
