I fear I may have approached this incorrectly from the beginning, but the problems I'm running into now include:
1. Pages in IE are cutting off the top portion of the center column text (where I removed the header image, made the space the same bg color as the body and pushed up the text margin to overlap it).I apologize if these are rookie questions, but I have been combing through the forum and haven't found pertinent answers. Any help / tips would be immensely appreciated.
2. I'd like to be able to have multiple columns within the center column on all my "page" pages - like this . I've tried adding a right sidebar widget (samsarin), but that doesn't seem like the right approach (no ability to format text to match center column contents, different content for each page)
3. I would like to be able to "float" images to one side of the text on other pages
4. Any recommendations for a simple, but flexible image gallery plugin would be appreciated as well.
