    Site borked in IE

    Can any css guru out there tell me why IE's being stupid and borking up my layout? Works perfect in FF.

    TIA

    Because IE sucks... and what does borked mean??

    Could you be a bit more specific in what you mean is wrong with it? The only thing I noticed (in IE6) was that your text sizes varied because you have not set them as constant for the headings, and IE and FF display headings sizes differently. Also all the links had the default browser colour which meant I couldn't actually see them in FF because they are a light orange!

    borked is that swedish chef on sesame street/muppets - old cf thing.

    The ad on the right is moving over too much to the left and forcing the main content to go down the page. I've not styled the links or anything yet as I'm just trying to get a layout working well

    This is because your page is set to resize as a percentage and that image in the middle of the content is longer than the content allows it to be so in IE it is placed below the advert where it is able to fit the width. In FF the image just overlays the advert. Try setting a width in pixels for your content, or middle section, this should sort that problem!

    You could also add floats to your divs
