    I am designing a site with HTML and CSS. I cant position the divs correctly. Can someone tell me the correct code. Imagine 2 divs, one on the right and one the left, both of same heights. That is simple. But i would like one on the left and 3 on the right, and the height must add up back to that of the left.

    Thank you so much for your help.

    This should do it (only tested in Firefox)

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
        <div style="float:left; background-color:red; width:50%; height:600px;">a</div>
        <div style="float:right;width:50%;">
          <div style="background-color:blue; height:200px;">b</div>
          <div style="background-color:yellow; height:200px;">c</div>
          <div style="background-color:green; height:200px;">d</div>
    Moving the inline styles into a css file is an exercise left for the reader :)
