Hi,

I'm designing two sites, both with the same problem.

The first is here: http://www.nycamprepairs.com

The site looks great in Safari and Firefox on the Mac but in IE my content is somehow sent down to the bottom of the page. Both my CSS and HTML validates on the W3C Validator. Please help! Thanks to all!

Alex

Here's my HTML:

Thanks so much. You saved me!

I wonder if you wouldn't mind answering why my code not working. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks for the help. I got nycamprepairs.com working in IE and Firefox, but one page still looks pretty lousy in Safari. But that one is OK for now.

My other site is having similar problems. It validates and looks fine in Firefox and Safari, but crazy in IE. If anyone feels like tackling it, here's the HTML:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

<title>Nu-Sonics</title>

<style type="text/css">

<h1>is now available. Buy it <a href="buy.html">here!</a></h1>
<p>A shotgun wedding of the ringing hooks of Big Star and the rootsy, noisy grit of Neil Young &amp; Crazy Horse come together to create the sound of The Nu-Sonics The "Eureka" E.P.</p>
<img class="floatRight" src="images/cover_digipak1.png" width="360" height="246" alt="Cover Photo" />
<p>The "Eureka" E.P. showcases a versatile rock and roll band capable of thoughtful acoustic ballads ("Words No Good"), witty, punky rock ("Nice Guys"), and pure pop confection ("Say Hello, No Goodbyes").</p>
<p>Alex Sniderman's songs wouldn't pack the same punch without the tightly wound band. Houston's versatile drumming and Anthony's surefooted bass glue everything together seamlessly. The lean arrangements are filled out by Tyson Rogers (The Blueprint Project, Yo La Tengo, Chris Stamey) on keyboards, Rebecca Turner's soaring harmonies, Brooklyn troubadour John Pinamonti on guitar and mandolin, and topped with Sniderman's supple, confident vocals.</p>
<p class="last">The Nu-Sonics is a band of music lovers and lifers who want to share the fun of making good noise with good friends.</p>
