set your newsreader to use fixed width font (or what is it
called?) so ----- is exactly as long as 5 spaces.
That way it's easier to see what you mean.

I think you are looking for this example:

or maybe

change the font your newsreader uses to something monospaced such as
'courier new' if you're going to do ascii art.

<div id="header">
</div>
<div id="whateverleft">
</div>
<div id="whateverright">
</div>
<div id="content">
</div>
(Replace whatever with whatever describes the content in that div.)

#whateverleft {float: left; width: 150px;}
#whateverright {float: right; width: 300px;}

This is just one solution. There are others, depending on what you want
exactly. Hard to tell from your post.

??? Are you viewing it in his newsreader or in yours? He can't set the font
your newsreader uses.

When someone uses ASCII art to illustrate something like this, I just copy
and paste it into a text editor with a monospace font.

I know that :-)
I just assume (sorry if I assumed wrong) that if you set
your newsreader to monospace, you also type your messages in
monospace. That way, he would see what I'm seeing now, and
what most of us see. (assuming again ;-) )

I am reading (and writing) all news in monospace.
My understanding is that the OP does not, or else his
vertical lines (ascii art) would have been straight here too.

That's the whole point. When viewed with a monospace font the diagram
didn't line up. It was obviously composed using a proportional font,
but as we don't know which one there's no way we can make it appear
correctly.

Did you do that in this case? If you had you would have seen that it
was a mess.

Oh, I get it. (D'oh! [And why *is* there an apostrophe in "d'oh"?]) Sorry.

"The Simpsons'" producers asked Dan Castellenata (sp?) for a certain
exclamatory remark. IIRC (from the interview I heard), he came up with
"doh" for the "exclamatory remark" in the script. The spelling of this
new word came much later.

I'm viewing it in a newsreader with a monospace font, and the lines don't
line up. The original poster needs to compose the article with a monospace
font in order for it to have any hope of being understandable *at all*.
