    Unhappy absolute positioning problems in IE.

    I've designed a site for a client in css and have floated 2 of the menu's down the side so that they appear after the content for search engine optimisation, I also want to position the navigation menu at the top so that it is the last piece of content that appears in the html so that the search engines dont pic up the navigation and use it to optimize my site.

    The navigation shows up in Firefox but doesn't show up in Internet explorer for some reason.

    I'm tempted to put the navigation first in the code just to get it over and done with but I know my boss will be checking as he really wants to please this client (you know, brown nose type thing).

    the site in question is Link.

    if anyone can shed any light on this it would be muchly appreciated.

    Andrew.

    Since when is satisfying a client considered brown nosing?

    It's the way you've floated the columns that come after the nav which is causing the problem. You might want to look at a couple of articles on source ordered three column layouts and revise what you've done:
