    www.di-ef.com. The site here works fine in firefox and IE7. But when users with IE6 visit it all they see is a large white area where #rightbar should display. I have been told that #rightbar is showing at the bottom AFTER all the banners on the left.

    I know this is a common problem but I've tried all the solutions I know of but I can't seem to figure it out.

    Your content width is set to 780px,

    left width is: 203px
    right width is: 560px

    That's 763 px;

    So you have 17 pixels remaining on the right side
    before you exceed the 780 pixel limit.

    This becomes a difference between IE and FF on
    how <table> padding is done. Since you pad your
    table elements by 4 (cellpadding=4) ... I think you're
    just exceeding the limit.

    Try this first:

    #content p, h1, h2, h3{
    margin-left: 20px;
    /* margin-right: 30px; */
    text-align: justify;
    }

    See if that buys you the space. Otherwise don't use <tables>
    and have the browsers properly calculate the widths.

    Another idea ... make the content 800 and let the people with
    small browsers have the horizontal scroll bar. Less and less people
    are using small browsers anyhow.

    Newchance ...

    Welcome to WDF .... couple of things.

    1) You should start a new thread for your question as it's
    a new topic ... but we'll leave it here for now.

    2) Cupon is spelled: Coupon

    3) You are right, your site is really messed up with IE.
    But, it's not going to be easy to fix. It's a mess of CSS and <tables>
    Things are not floated correctly, sized correctly, positioned correctly.
    Conflicts between widths of tables and widths defined in CSS.

    I suggest you find a CSS template to use and start all over ... from scratch.

    There are many pre-made CSS templates you can use that will match the exact
    layout that you're trying to create:
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...=Google+Search

    I'm also not sure if your online store is creating by you (static webpage) or
    part of a PHP/MySQL database thing. You might want to look into using
    something like CubeCart (shopping cart system). That would also solve a lot
    of your problems.

    Good Luck
