    column w/o floats

    Hello, I have just began learning to code HTML and CSS, and I have run into a problem. After reading a book on html/css, I tried to use the webkit/moz column count and just regular column count to make two different columns. I have tried many different things trying to put my sidebar and main content into two columns but nothing seems to work. The second columns ends up getting cut off, is in the wrong place, etc. etc. It might be that my code is completely wrong. If there is a better way to do it I would be happy to know, or if there is a solution that's just as well.
    Here is a sample of my code:

    #content {
    column-fill: balance;
    overflow: hidden;
    -webkit-column-count: 2;
    -webkit-column-width: 20em;
    -moz-column-count: 2;
    -moz-column-width: 20em;
    column-count: 2;
    column-width: 20em;
    -webkit-column-break-after: always;
    -webkit-column-break-before: auto;
    -webkit-column-break-inside: never;

    #submenu {
    margin-top: 20px;
    margin-right: 25px;
    height: 425px;
    width: 160px;
    background-color: rgb(63, 205, 236);
    border-radius: 10px;
    padding: 10px 20px 5px 10px;

    for the HTML, the columns are set for both the main content and "submenu"(#content). Again, this can be completely wrong, but was the best I could do. I inlcuded the submenu in case that could have anything to do with it. THANKS!

    It probably isn't your code. column-count isn't fully supported by most browsers yet, along with most multi-column stuff. Oddly enough, IE leads the way in terms of support.

    Can I use... Support tables for HTML5, CSS3, etc
