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?

Add overflow:auto to your container and remove the left and right border from the other div's

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
