I'm having problems with max-width and IE and wondering if there is an alternative or a way to fix it. While Firefox does it just fine (I dont have Netscape to test yet, I'll have to install it), IE ignores it completely.

Here is the link to the css
http://dreamlab.cc/imagevault/layout.css
and here is the page with the example.

As a disclaimer I need to add that my code ist most likely a mess and full of things I shouldn't have dared. So, anyone who reads it, please excuse the chaos.

Thanks in advance for any hints into the right direction, I'm forever grateful

Oh and don't mind the babble on the webpage, thats so I dont forget what I want to do
