[thelist] CSS positioning variances

Versions are IE 6 and Opera 6.02

The CSS is declared using the style atribute of the <ul> tag:

<ul style="position:absolute; top:450px; left:230px; " >
	<li style="text-align:left;">Adapting . . </li>
	<li><img src="images/designopt_cr1_210.jpg"></li>

I have 3 lists down one side of the page with some text and an image, then
there are 2 more I want to layout horizontally, with the tops lined up with
the lowest vertically aligned list. (take a look:
http://www.designoptions.com/newsite/gallery.htm )

I am not sure what the strict or quirks modes are, and I don't know how to
switch them on or off.

I am having the same kind of problem on another page, a map of the us
(http://www.designoptions.com/newsite/replocator.htm) where rollover images
are not lining up the way I expect them in Opera.  In the Rep locator, the
CSS is in a file.  If you want to see the structure for this one also I can
post it.

Can you be a bit more specific? Which version of Opera, which version of
IE? What's the mark-up/CSS look like? Are you in strict our quirks mode?
(It could be a box model difference, for example.)
