in the above two pictures you can see i have the main container, filled with 3 smaller divs, one big in the middle, and two skinny on both sides, but the right side doesnt start until underneath the middle div.

how can i get this right ones top aligned with the others in the container?

Answer

Something like this should do it:

.column-left { float: left; width: 10%; }
.column-right { float: right; width: 10%; }
.column-center { display: inline-block; width: 80%; }

EDIT

You can also use flexible boxes (supported only by modern browsers):
