    HTML & CSS Layout Help

    Hello,

    I am trying to create a layout with the sidebar on the left and content on the right, this is my first time creating a site with this layout type:

    Doctype: HTML5 -> Transitional

    Issues:

    1. I am having trouble to create a layout that expands dependent on the amount of data given.

    2. How would I produce the graphic -> Metal so that it expands.

    3. Why am I getting overlap with I hover over my nav dropdown menu -> The nav does not seem to get wider for the number of options within it.

    4. Would I make my #rightCol graphic a fixed width?

    5. Do I even need #rightCol?

    6. Should I make the width 960 or 990px?

    HTML:

    HTML Code:
           <html>
        <head>
        </head>
        <body>
        	<div id ="wrapper">
                <div id ="header">
        		<h1 id = "companyName">Houses</h1>
        		<h4 id = "companyQuote">"Houses"</h4>
        	    </div>
        <div id="leftCol">
        <nav>
        <ul>
