ContentPane region attribute not working

I am new to the API and get stuck on something that seems very straightforward.  I have three content panes in a bordercontainer.  I use the region attribute to specify their locations on the page, but the specs seem to be ignored by the browser (tried on FireFox so far). No matter what locations I specified the browser always place the three content panes from top to bottom in the order the <div> elements appear in the HTML document.  Any suggestions? Here is my HTML doc.  Thanks a lot.
