    Problems with text disappearing and being moved below elements

    I'm working on a new site design... it's still definitely a work in progress. I've got the home page displaying pretty well, but the inner page is giving me some trouble and I can't figure out what's causing it.

    http://www.eleytech.com/newsite/

    Check out the home page then click any of the main links (Services, etc.) to see the inner page.

    In IE, the text at the top of the page dissapears (you can still highlite it) and the portfolio image is pushed down below the elements on the right (the floated sidebar).

    It looks perfect in FF 1.5... what could be causing this IE issue?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    I don't see the text being pushed down but the image appears to be too wide for that space. When I recreate your page locally, if I give it a width smaller than its actual dimensions, it doesn't drop down. Firefox will let inline elements too big for their containers stick out the side, whereas IE will push the container down to a space that can accommodate it.

    That was it... with margin and padding I miscalculated the width (by 2 whole pixels). Reducing the size fixed both problems.

    Thanks!
