[thelist] IE6 doesn't allow percentage width unless there is overflow

I am trying to set a main content div to 74% width with 13% margins at 400px height.  This works fine in gecko and opera, but IE6 is only using the width if the div has overflow.  Does anyone know how to fix this or have a work around?

here is the url to a div with no overflow:
here is a url where the div has overflow:

I'm in a time crunch, so all help VERY much appreciated.
