Hi Viveka,

You have this:

body {
     background-color: #FAF8EB;
     background-image: url("images/bg1.gif");
     background-repeat: repeat-x;
     background-attachment: fixed;
     font-family:Verdana,"Bitstream Vera 
     font-size: .85em;
     letter-spacing: 0px;//don't steal sheep
     color: #000000;

The comment after "letter spacing" uses improper syntax and seems to 
confuse IE. Either delete it or use "/* insert comment */" if you really 
want to warn people not to steal sheep.
