There is definitely something strange going on with the page height
calculation in IE.  The problem seems to be related to the fact that
#leftcontent is both the longest of the two panels and it is a float.

There are three solutions to this that seem to cure the problem ... 
1) make #rightcontent float instead of #leftcontent ...  this will require
changes to the html to make it work
2) make #rightcontent float:right whilst #leftcontent float:left
3) set overflow:visible for #leftcontent

I have managed to get option three to fail, but option 2 seems to be quite
solid, it seems to have worked everytime so far ... over to you :)

I have tried all of the above with your problem configuration ... IE6 on XP
all service packed up.

I am having a problem I had last month. . .where the page seems to be
stopping halfway down the page.


In this case the site stops at the Sitemeter Javascript code at the very
bottom right of the page. But it only stops sometimes. . .and works fine in
Firefox. But in IE it stops.

So. . . . . 
(a) is it loading for you? 
And (b) if it is/isn't, what browser are you using? 
And (c) If it is not loading correctly, any ideas why? I am at my wits end.

If you noticed I put it just outside the last </div>. I have tried putting
it inside and outside the <div> region and it still is the same way.

Thanks in advance,
