This is my first time in here, so hello to all!

I am creating a site and things are moving along nicely except for in IE6. I would like to get this sorted as Im sure someone will enter the site with this browser and I dont want them to leave because of a few important errors.

I can see that certain divs are pushing others down and creating a gap, also the padding is a problem in the footer. There are a couple of screenshots taken in IE6. Also here is a link to the page.

If anyone can point me in the right direction as to how to fix this I would appreciate it greatly. I realise that these topics have been covered greatly but while I have done my best to research this I have come up with zero.

Try this site to see what quirks exist for IE 5 and 6. Its kind of an old site but still very helpful for these 2 versions of IE: http://www.positioniseverything.net/explorer.html
