something is screwed up in my css, at least when I view this page in IE6

http://www.psychic4u.net/20080325/the-ultimate-tool-for-the-psychic-healer/

everytime I use a blockquote, the text AFTER it becomes indented to the left a bit and If I use two blockquotes, the text after the second blockquote becomes indented to the left even MORE than after the first blockquote...

anyone have a clue what bug in my css is the cause?

html, body {
margin: 3px auto;
padding: 0px;
font-family: Verdana,Arial,Geneva, sans-serif;
font-size: 8px;
text-align: center;
background-color: #EFEDED;
