Well I'm pretty uneducated in CSS, I have just played around with it hours and hours and always figured out what I was trying to do. But right now I am stumped. Please view the following page in FireFox if you have it:
http://www.iqdrop.com/newiq/index.php
Then in IE

You see the Google ad is dropped way down in IE for some reason and overlaps my menu, and the <DIV> containing the word "index.php" is also taller in IE.

I'm not sure what is wrong and I've been trying all sorts of things with no luck. Thanks for any help.

&lt;DIV&gt; positioning different in IE and FF

You need to use a proper DTD, else IE follows even fewer of the rules than usual. See http://www.alistapart.com/articles/doctype/ for more.

That may or may not fix anything, but until you have IE in standards mode, there is no point in messing with it.

cheers,

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

Well after messing with it some more I have got it to work, one of the problems was the doc-type, thanks.
