    Hey there.. I have been developing a website for the company I'm working for and been learning a lot in the process. One of the problems I'm having is while my css looks great in IE7 and firefox, it kind of messes up in IE6.

    For example, the "menu bar" line shifts far down over the image when using IE 6 in "index.htm"

    A second problem is that my table in "prodetail.htm" stretches WAYYYY far down in IE6. I believe this is because I am styling the vertical borders of this table with CSS.

    If anyone can fix this problem. Or give me some simple fixes, that would be great. Keep in mind I'm a bit of a noob.

    For future reference, if you wish to seek help from here, you should upload your files to some web server and provide a link for us to look at rather than zip the files in an archive for us to download.

    On that note, I won't be able to help you, but I can tell you from experience I have better luck with IE7 when developing for IE6 and Firefox rather than developing for IE7 and Firefox.

    Code:
    <!--[if IE 6]>
        <style type="text/css" media="all">@import ie_styles.css";</style>
    <![endif]-->
    
    It will include a separate CSS file that will allow you to customize elements in IE6.
