ok - in IE 6 (at least) the page below - and all pages like it - don't display properly - the bottom box to the right with the "Downloads" header - is dropping down under the tabbed content area - it should stay to the right -
it works fine in Firefox & IE8 -
please help? thanks in advance

There are plenty of errors in your markup, see http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.challengerlifts.com%2FCLFP9.shtml&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0
Fix them all first. (All the tags and attribute names should be lower case)

Take a look at http://bonrouge.com/2c-hf-fluid(r).php to see how to make a good 2 column layout without any box model issues (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Explorer_box_model_bug).

I'm sure there are plenty of errors, as I am a print designer and not so much a web designer - however - the company I work for handed this to me - so here I am =]
My immediate need is to get the Downloads box to stay inline with the tab content - I can clean up code that the end users don't see anyways after the fact -
thanks for your help
