    Site not compatible in IE :(

    Someone please help me? My site isn't compatible in IE, and I have tried multiple codes to to fix, all fail.

    Somebody lead me in the right direction, or at least advise me of which piece of code is making the problem.

    The head of your page is missing a doctype. Without one, IE makes no attempt to perform like other more modern browsers. Use HTML4.01 strict.

    These help very much, but none of them fully fix the site.

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">


    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">


    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/frameset.dtd">

    What specifically is not working? Is it the backgrounds? or the extra space on the bottom?

    "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

    Trust me, I've validated the page innumerable times before I asked this.

    What's not working?

    Well there are these rounded corner boxes...

    That were originally on the side of the page...

    They were like the side bar, but seperated by like modules.

    They don't show in IE.

    They show in FF, but after I messed around with the coding, they all show up in one straight column on the left with no text.
