I'm using the most current version of magazine basic for my test site. The site looks good on Chrome, FF, Safari and IE (9.0), until you switch IE to compatibility mode. Once IE is in compatibility mode, the whole site is messed up. I have checked html that I entered and it appears ok. Could this be something with the theme files (like an unclosed div)? Heres a link to my test site if you want to try it in IE compatibility mode.
