this displays, with content, just fine for me (i assume)...

these two show only the header, no content... but there is no 
content in the source code, either...

i guess i don't know what to look for, but the source code shows no 
content... it's almost as if there's an issue on the server side 
causing the page to fail to render to HTML properly from whatever 
server-side scripting language they use...

to test this theory, i opened the pages in IE5.0/win98 and got the 
exact same results... i'd look to the server first... find out if any of 
your HTML or CSS conflicts with any reserved words, special tags, 
etc. that may exist in their CMS tools...
