    detect any visitors using IE and show them a "get firefox" page with a google adsense referral link.

    change this in your global.css

    #content_main {
    width: 550px;
    padding: 15px;
    line-height: 19px;
    float: right;
    }

    actually, make the width smaller on that div too, to like 500px

    tried both of those suggestions, they didn't seem to do much to correct it though

    Go with the 2nd post. Make some extra $$ while getting some to switch to a better browser.

    you have to take into account all that margin and paddings youre giving to your content divs.

    you have to add it all up so it doesnt exceed the bodys width

    adjusted the padding, that worked, thanks for the suggestions, if someone could make sure it displays correctly that would be awsome, i checked it in firefox and IE and it looks good
