[thelist] Side navlist nudging text in main content

I'm preparing a new version of my site using CSS layout. All seems to be
going fairly well, but there's a small issue that I can't figure out.
The problem is that there seems to be something in the leftnav section
that is "reaching out" and nudging the heading and the first several
lines of text an extra 3 pixels or so to the right. Of course the effect
is just barely noticeable, even in IE Win, and most users would probably
never notice, but some would.

I should mention that I've seen this problem only in IE6 Win. Netscape
7, Opera 7, Mozilla 1.4, and Firebird (v 0.6.1) seem to display the text
just fine. I don't have a machine running IE5 Win, but I wouldn't be
surprised to learn that the problem exists there as well. IE Mac seems
okay. It could be some overflow situation, but darned if I can tell
what's overflowing.

If anyone has the time and inclination to check it out, I've posted a
scaled-down version of the page at:

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
