    Almost Perfect ... Breaks in IE5.5 and IE6

    My site's XHTML and CSS validates and looks perfect in all linux, mac and window browsers except IE5.5 and IE6 (I checked this using browsershots.org). IE5.5 is probably not important, but I'd still like to understand why it's breaking. In IE6, only the footer is broken ... it shifts slightly to the left. I have separate style sheets for IE5.5 and IE 6 to control some letterspacing in my button links. Everything else is identical to my regular style sheet. Can someone advise me on how to correct the breaking problems in IE5.5 and IE6? Here's the address of my test page:

    Thanks!

    Adding margin: 0 auto to #siteinfo should sort it out.

    Thanks. That centered the footer in IE6, however, I have two absolutely positioned PNG images at the bottom of the footer that stick to the bottom of the footer in all browsers except IE6. Is there anything I can do about that.

    Any idea why the floats are breaking in IE5.5 (still wanting to learn how CSS works).

    Sorry about the post elsewhere. Thanks for your help!

    Probably the PNG fix .htc is causing the problem. You don't even need to use it - there's no need to use alpha-transparent PNGs for those images, just use normal PNGs antialiased against the bg-color of the page.
    Can't help you with IE5.5.
