looks good in firefox, etc, but IE has the title/tagline too high, and the nav section too narrow.

can anyone help me with the css hacks to fix the ie display?
here's the working design url:
http://vulio.com/portfolio/lion/liondesign.html

side note:
I know the markup is muddled between css html, and not strict in the slightest sense. I'm just doing this quick and dirty for my neighbor as a friendly favor. so the validity isn't a worry right now.

thanks so much for any help!

HELP! IE screwing up my design

I would say that it is to do with the minuses!!

#masthead {
background-image: url(lion-masthead2.gif);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
height: 140px;
width: 700px;
border: 1px solid black;
border-bottom: 2px solid black;
position: relative;
top: 14px;
}
#masthead h1 {
color: #B4AFA3;
font-size: 22pt;
padding-left: 10px;
position: relative;
left: -200px;
top: -12px;
}
#masthead p {
color: black;
font-size: 9pt;
font-weight: bold;
padding-left: 2px;
position: relative;
left: -186px;
top: -30px;
}

keep it relative.

That might work?

Try this code instead looks good in Safari.

#masthead h1 {
color: #B4AFA3;
font-size: 22pt;
padding-left: 10px;
position: relative;
top: 12px;
text-align: left;
}
#masthead p {
color: black;
font-size: 9pt;
font-weight: bold;
padding-left: 2px;
position: relative;
top: 30px;
text-align: left;
}

Please do something about the strech on that image!

HELP! IE screwing up my design

geez, duh.
thanks
the obvious stuff tends to escape me...

there's no stretch on that image...what browser are you looking at it in? got a screen shot? I can't see a stretch in any browser I view it in - it just looks as it's supposed to (and I did no stretching of it myself)

thanks for the help. I greatly appreciate it.
(oh, and I fixed the nav narrowness by applying a full dtd doc type)
