    I downloaded and built a site using the template AudiR8 Magazine v1.0.

    It looks great in every browser except IE. The content div slides below the side bar div. At first i thought it was something i did but when i visit the authors demo page the same issue occurs.

    I put a lot of time into customizing and populating the site and don't want to have to rebuild it so any help any one could provide would be greatly appreciated.

    I validated it and besides a bunch of references to the youtube widget in the side bad specificly the autoplay these are the only items the validator found

    Line 318, Column 23: document type does not allow element "style" here
    <style type="text/css">

    The element named above was found in a context where it is not allowed. This could mean that you have incorrectly nested elements -- such as a "style" element in the "body" section instead of inside "head" -- or two elements that overlap (which is not allowed).
    One common cause for this error is the use of XHTML syntax in HTML documents. Due to HTML's rules of implicitly closed elements, this error can create cascading effects. For instance, using XHTML's "self-closing" tags for "meta" and "link" in the "head" section of a HTML document may cause the parser to infer the end of the "head" section and the beginning of the "body" section (where "link" and "meta" are not allowed; hence the reported error).

    I believe most of those are regarding text fields and their formating.

    Ok so i went threw the css and this is the only code that makes any difference. It makes no difference in IE but if i remove it the div slides down in all other browsers.
    '#content {
    float: left !important;
    width: 521px !important;
    padding: 0px 17px 0 16px !important;
    }'
