I'm having a heck of a time figuring out why my content isn't floating in IE7 mode when it works in other browsers.

If you looks at the content right below the slideshow for events: http://whatcommuseum.org/home-page they are supposed to be horizontal not vertical.

Compatibility mode sucks: don't use it

Delete this line:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7"/>

In its place, put this:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

Compatibility mode is for old, ill written pages coded for IE in quirks mode. IE7 was a pretty decent (for IE) bug fix version, and IE8 did away with the reason for most IE5/6 problems. While v.6 may still have some issues, they are well known and easily worked around. IE7 should have few problems at all in standards mode.



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