    Need help with overflowing content in IE

    Hello.

    I am having some problems with my css stylesheet in IE vs FF. My page can be found here: http://basementbar.net/bb/homepage_many_notables.php . And the directory root is browsable.

    The page looks great in Firefox, as it should, but in IE 6 ( which stats show as being the #1 used browser on our site ) there is a problem with the last menu item not showing up. I know its something simple, but I've been racking my brains out for a couple hours trying things.

    Im more of a table in table designed, and really, am a programmer first, but I was asked to take a crack at doing a css type template.

    If somebody could help me with this, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks!
    Allan.

    You have this for your ul element:
    Code:
    #fancymenu ul, #pictureselect {
    	padding: 0;
    	margin-top: 0;
    }
    The indention of the ul element is implemented differently in IE than in Firefox. While Firefox uses ul {padding-left: 40px}, then IE instead uses ul {margin-left: 40px}.

    To remove the space on the left side in both browsers you will need somtehing like this:
    Code:
    ul {
    	margin-left: 0;
    	padding-left: 0;
    }
