    My site, http://www.eyeno.net uses the newspaper style that I got from Alex King's site. Love the look of it but I have a problem. In Firefox, the left column with categories, links, etc. shows just fine. In IE (not that I use it), the whole column doesn't show.
    My CSS is http://www.eyeno.net/wp-layout.css
    Love WordPress

    There is something going wrong in your width calculation. You have the calendar at 200px, and the menu at 200px as well but IE is deducting the margins from the menu so it won't fit. Adjust accordingly. Welcome to the WordPress brit pack. ;)

    Looking within your template file, you have two <div id="menu"> tags. Also, the page is not valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional, and there are other errors in the page which doesn't allow to check the CSS.

    Sorry to pile it on but your #header is a lot lot wider than the #rap. Good Luck.

    I know. Not much point in putting in the fancy hack and then failing to actually insert the width in question. Or to add the Opera counter effect afterwards.

    Thanks everyone for helping out. I switched to another style until I get the hang of the CSS thing.
    You guys are the greatest!!
