Your #commentform textarea is too wide for IE 6's taste.  IE expands the 
container to accomodate content; you have padding: .2em and width: 100% 
on #commentform textarea, so IE is making the content column too wide. 
Set padding: 0; on it.  If that fails, you might set a fixed width on 

Your site in Win IE 5.5 is need of attention, btw.  Setting body { 
text-align: center; } for IE only would be a start.  cf css-d for hackery:
