So I thought my site was all set for all browsers, but someone told me that after I posted a new entry the other day, it started looking all screwed up in IE6 for PC, with the right column text not starting until its below the level of the left column text.

http://www.maxsilvestri.com

Here's the relevant CSS.

#frame {		
		height:auto;
		width:730px;
		background-image: url(/images/content.gif);
		background-repeat:repeat-y;
		margin-right:auto;
		margin-left:auto;
		margin-top:0px;
		padding:0px;
		text-align:left;
				}

#leftcontent {
		float:left;
		width:230px;
		font-size:12px;
		padding:0px;
		color:#000000;
		}

#rightcontent {
	width:500px;
	padding:0px;
	margin-left:230px;
		}

#footer {
	clear:both;
	position:relative;
	background-image:url(/images/footer.gif);
	background-repeat:no-repeat;
	background-position:bottom;
	margin-bottom:0px;
	padding-bottom:5px;
	height:55px;
	width:730px;
	text-align:right;
	color:#FFFFFF;
		}

If anyone has any ideas, I sure would appreciate them. This site looks perfect on Opera and Mozilla.

Excellent, thanks! I'll give that a try as soon as I have a chance.

I knew it was something weird, because up until I had posted my last three entries (all with italics), it looked fine on IE6.
