    Please help. I've finally got a site how I want it, but IE is giving me problems. Looks how its supposed to in firefox.


    I'm sure the solution will be in the #content div in style.css. And its got to be in the "float" or "display" property, but I just can't get it. I appreciate any help.

    Look at your homepage in the page validator
    You have 125 errors, many of them mismatched HTML ending tags. In other words, a lot of bad HTML code.

    Firefox is pretty forgiving about bad code - Internet Explorer much less so. Unfortunately you have to clean up your code if you want it to work correctly in IE.

    Your site displays correctly in IE8. It's IE7 (IE8 Compatibility Mode) where its broken.

    You've got <div id="menu-left">(your right sidebar), width 328px, floated right. You've got <div id="content">, width 680px, also floated right. You might try setting the right margin in the stylesheet for <div id="content"> to at least 328px (add margins as well), to make room for <div id="menu-left">.

    Hope this helps...
