Have a look here:


I made a number of changes to the main stylesheet -- unfortunately, I 
deleted my change log by mistake, so I can't tell you now what all I 
changed. Mostly floats, and the addition of some absolute positioning 
here and there.

Also, the above page doesn't resize properly; if you reduce the browser 
window from full screen, the right column starts to disappear under the 
other two columns. This could probably be fixed fairly easily... I just 
don't have any more time to spend on it.

Anyway, if you look through 'mainb.css', hopefully you'll be able to 
pick up some ideas on how to make the site work better in IE 6.
