end sidebar so main content fills in IE

I have set my services page css with no left margin for the main content so that it would then fill the entire area when the left sidebar ended. Used a DW basic left sidebar header and footer template that had a comment about it in the css template.

Looks good in Fire Fox but in IE7 it still keeps all main content to the right. I have tried a few things but to no avail. Here is a link to the page and to the css- http://www.'>http://www. stephenwesleyagency. com/client_preview_area/Kings Hand Car Wash/services.html

Thanks for any help avail

I am trying to find the .dwt file to modify the template. The hasLayout comment is 'greyed out' and on the html page not the css. Sorry for the wrong category. I am finding so much info on this, I'm almost afraid to do anything. Going to save what I have and mess around with a copy but if anyone has a couple of instructions for this DW CS3 template, that'd be great. Hoping to apply this to the gallery page as well. Thx! (But not to the index or contact pages!)

No, I just want to edit an area that is un-editable (grayed out) in my DW template header code. I have already modified the css - with my colors, fonts, styles, etc. as well as added much content to the page but now want to change/remove that comment in the header code that contains the hasLayOut you referred to; in hopes that it fixes my initial problem - the main content filling in under the end of the left sidebar content in IE.

Sometimes once the problem is fixed....well...dee dah dee :/

 

The second problem with the un-editable region is teh one I am referring to above. It was fixed doing this - (found at ehow). I already the page with my own content.

Open the page.

Click File, Save as Template, locate the site the template will be saved in and name the template. My version (DW CS3) asked if I want to update links. I said yes. Then in code view I was able to change/erase the gray text (it was still gray). I removed the issue.

 

This fixed the initial problem - getting the main content to fill the page when the sidebar content ended. THANK YOU ERIC! for pointing me in the right direction to the hasLayOut comment for IE.
