Most of the time the problem shows when just one of the columns is floated, 
the solution I found is to float both columns ( sidebar and content ), but 
other problems will show up like: 

* Tables  will not center right in some browsers.
* You will have to use filters/csshacks/conditional comments to give some 
browsers different rules, mostly IEs.
* It is also good to use the xml declaration to put IEs in non standards 
mode/quircks mode as IE6 is not a good player.
* When floating all columns, give containers the property "overflow:hidden" so 
the layout won't break.
* Use containers and never use padding on containers, use margins in inner div 
html tags (thanks XES).

I hope this can help you a bit,


(excuse my english as it is not that good)
