[thelist] Site Check - MAC IE 4.5 Help

I didn't look at Mac IE 4.5, but I did look at it with Mac IE 5.2 and 
it indeed doesn't render as you prefer. I'm not certain, but it appears 
that your menu div, with width:auto wants to take up 100% of the width, 
and this then pushes the main content below it. Your inner lists in the 
menu (#menu ul ul a) stay within their 125px width, but the outer list 
stretches all the way across. Perhaps setting a specific width would 

My understanding is that floats with margins and/or borders (at least 
left and right) can also cause trouble.
