IE 6 stylesheet not being applied

for this site (http://www.bankingwiththebeard.com/wordpress/) i have code below positioned in the header.php file for an IE6 CSS hack but for some reason it doesnt seem its being applied.

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>" />
<!--[if IE 6]>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://www.bankingwiththebeard.com/wordpress/wp-content/themes/green-theme/ie6_style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />
<![endif]-->

the code within the ie6_style.css file reads as follows:

#body {background: #FFFFFF;}

IE 7, and 8 issues - weird spacing/overlapping

I've spent a few weeks on and off working on a site for my mom. Testing in IE 7 and 8 however, has ground any further development to a halt. I guess I'll start off by giving a link to the site (I've removed any real content / logos for now (but trust me, their removal had no effect on the issue). Please help.. I'd love to get this site up for my mom sometime soon.. preferably before Mother's day Wink

Here's my CSS code:

a span.tooltip {
