css validation have sense only after your html is valid. You have 290 errors:

http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fseniorhelpspokane.com%2F

fix them first, please.

Never, ever use IE as a reference for how things work.

Howard's right. Best to use Mozilla Firefox as a reference, then adjust for IE.

CSS validation won't suggest fixes for IE bugs. You have to learn the fixes and will do so, as each problem arises.

Fix the actual coding errors, as suggested by the validator, then you can start thinking about adding in fixes for IE. You might find things start to improve, once you've tidied up in there but you need to start with some clean, valid code, to add these fixes to.

you don't need to waste all that work. Just start to fix the errors starting from top( of the validator page) and revalidate each time. One error trigger another so there are not so many as you see on w3c page.

best regards
