At first glance, I don't see a problem. What browser are you using?

Try adding some margins to the side of the centre column.
Because of the floats, the centre will flow past the column lines unless there is a margin the same width of the side columns.



margin-left: 150px;
margin-right: 150px;

Or something like that. Worth a try.
