I am not sure why the content background is not showing up. It works in IE but not in Opera or FF. :S, #1 fixed btw
EDIT: Getting closer to #2 but how would I fill it all in with white or a selected color (possibly light teal?)
#4 good suggestion, but I have the site split up into 8 100px columns, and the nav links line up with them at the fixed width (well pretty dang close atleast, maybe a pixel off)
Thanks, will look into the others!
