Floats alone didn't solve my problem. So I had to use some relative and absolute positioning as well. The banner just sits in the flow with a display:block to cover the full width. The middle column sits below with margings-left and right set to get some space for the columns on the side. This is all necessary to allow the statusbar to diplay below all that (with a simple clear:both). The left column is positioned absolute in the left margin of the middle column. There is no right column. Instead I use that space to display inline sideboxes from the middle column.

I use relative positioning to display various other elements. Take a look at <http://www.xs4all.nl/~jgurp/homepage>
