[TYPO3] No content in Left or right columns

I am at my wit's end on this. I read quite a bit of the  
documentation, I have some experience in
setting up drupal, mambo and other CMS systems, but for the life of me,
can't seem to get content to appear in any column but the main  

I tried several of the standard templates (bug, green...) . I tried
several different types of content (sitemenus and just plain text), but
the left column comes up empty. In the control panel, the content  
shows, but not on the HTML page.

Neither the page, nor the content is set to "hide"

In the resulting HTML, The frameset gives 200 px for the left frame,  
which is plenty to display
the text I entered ("this is some text").
<frameset cols="200,*" border="0" framespacing="0" frameborder="no">

To recap: Any content I place in the "Normal" (main) column shows up
beautifully. Any content I place in the left, right or border columns
does NOT show up at all. Below is the source for the Left column. As you
can see, there is nothing at all within the body tags.

I've been at this for days now. Help!



source for the left frame
