    IE list bullet issues

    how come when you view this page in IE(9) the bullets for the lists in the content area appear over the images to their left and not to the immediate left of the list items like they do in other browsers?

    please advise. thanks in advance.

    Hello sixrfan,
    There's a lot going on there...

    First - you don't clear the floats in .prodprod, see clearing floats here.

    Second - when you float .entry-content img and try to put block level ul next to it, you need to make room for the float. Typically that would be a left margin the width of the float plus whatever space you want between them. Another method is overflow: auto; and padding. See how easy two columns can be here.

    Third - just a pet peeve of mine... what is .pic4prod doing? It is not needed to contain that image, you don't seem to be able to come up with any styling for it in the CSS - see divitis here.

    clear: both; would clear .prodprod itself, if it needed it. It doesn't clear the contents of .prodprod though. The min-height you've added is just a band-aide. Have a look at that link about clearing floats, it explains what's going on and how to fix it.
