    I don't know what 'problems' you're talking about, but that left menu looks OK in Mozilla. It doesn't look too good in IE6, though: the text from 'Contact Us' and down is shifted too far to the right, and the email link is flush with the bottom of the grey box.

    Hi,
    In Firefox the center content is very tight on left column but is fine in IE6.
    I can only see a 3pixel difference due to the 3 pixel jog in ie.

    This will fix that issue.


    Code:
     
    #center {
     line-height: 1em;
       padding: 13px;
     margin-left: 200px;
    }
    /* mac hide \*/
    * html #left{margin-right:-3px}
    * html #center, * html #center p {height:1%}
    * html #center{margin-left:197px}
    /* end hide*/

    Thanks Paul,

    How do I fix the text from Contact Us down?? Sometimes it sits to the left in IE6 until I hit refresh.

    Hi,

    It looks as though you have no centering in effect anyway so its just an ie layout bug from the looks of things. Firefox is left aligned and I can's see any centering in effect anywhere!

    If you add the heigth:1% hack then it sats on the left all the time.

    Code:
    #otherleft {
     padding-left: 5%;
    }
    /* mac hide \*/
    #otherleft {height:1%}
    /* end hide */
    If you want it centred then you will need to give the text a width and use margin:auto and (text-align:center on the parent for ie5 and 5.5.).

    Or just give it a bit more padding left to push it into position.
