can someone please help me, in IE6, my homepage text is in the wrong place?!

this only happens in IE6, why?

IE6 has a tendancy to double up margins/padding on floated elements inside elements and sometimes just for poops and giggles, I would suggest putting borders on your middle/right/left column and see if they overlap in IE6 ;)

I would've done it using webtools but I really don't like CSS which isn't tabulated :P (sorry)

I don't think this is the doubled margin bug in IE6, it's a variant of the 3px bug (http://www.positioniseverything.net/explorer/threepxtest.html), caused by #rightcolumn (296px) and #centercolumn (346px) fitting exactly within #maincontent (642px). Fine with a browser that works correctly, but IE6 will add 3px, thus causing your float drop.

Quick solution: add float:left to #centrecolumn.
