Thank you for reading this. Our site http://www.viruxo.com/cart/index.php?main_page=howitworks&thetest=true has issues. The right menu bar is a float right and some of the pages will not show up next to it they start further down. If you are an expert could you please give me some direction on this.

Hello reefdvrjim,
I don't even have IE6 anymore and I've pretty much stopped coding for it too so I'm not sure I'm going to be much help.
There is a list of IE6 bugs and fixes that may help you - http://www.positioniseverything.net/explorer.html

I know that any pixel tight layout can be difficult with IE6 and I'm sure it's the same with negative margins like your using.
Even with negative margins though, your box model (http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/box.html) should still work. Your 845px wide .n_my_content does not fit in your 800px wide #mainWrapper - remember, margin/padding/border all count when figuring total widths.

Thank you for your help.. I just moved a few things around and got it to work... I'm not sure if it is the correct way but it works now.
