Help!
I can't find what's doing it; The whole page is visible in IE7 and FF, but the center and right column are invisible in IE6. The text is there in the source and the page expands with longer pages on the site, the content is just not there. The site has been pieced together from several incarnations of this site, so the code is not pretty, but can someone help me fix the immediate problem.

This is the rule that causes it.

CODE
.interestItems{list-style-image: url(../images/ulButton.jpg);
    margin-top:10px;
    padding-left:5%;
    margin-left:5%;}


I didn't look at the code much, so I don't know why this happens. But if you set the padding and margin in pixels or em instead the page will come back as long as you don't make them too large. Possibly you are making it too tight for IE's liking.

You should slap a doctype on and validate.

Incidentally, a doctype that put IE6 in Standards Mode also fixes the problem. But that won't help with older versions of IE.
