Fixing the size of a DIV

P: n/a
I have created a 3 column liquid design webpage, the left and right columns
are fixed at 200 pixels, the center one re-sizes when needed, however I want
the minimum size of the center div to be 350, and so therefore the minimum
size of the page would be 750px, no matter what.

At the minute, if i re-size my screen lower than 400, the 2 side columns
come close together and block the center one completely, is it possible to
do this without the use of spacer gifs or anything like that???

min-width: 350px;

Shame IE doesn't support it.

Is there anything similar that IE supports as that does the job perfect in
firefox.

You forgot to mention the obvious - fixing the width does not make it a
fluid (liquid?) design.

True but the design doesn't need to work for anythin, the smallest browser
it has to work for is 800x600, no pda or nothin, i just want it to expand to
full and re-size to only that size. I'm designing it for the customers
needs, which means only half of a liquid design if you know what i mean
