Website doesn't display correctly in IE5 for MAC

Hi all Mac users,

I'm not sure if I'm in the right section but here goes.

I've developed a website that went live 2 days ago using ASP.NET, it doesn't display properly with IE5 on Mac machines. And we don't have Macs at our company so my only solution might be the Mac users that come here. The site looks perfect in all other browsers except for a few design variations. But specifically on a Mac, the site is totally messed!

I have no idea where to start looking to rectify the problem. But I'm sure you can view the source of the page as a start...

Regards
Dangeriz

I briefly tried your site with the following browsers running on Mac OS X 10.3.4

Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.2
Apple Safari 1.2.2
OmniGroup OmniWeb 5.0 RC 2
Mozilla-based Camino 0.8
Opera 6.0.3

Opera and Camino display gray horizontal dashed lines on the page.
These do not appear in IE, Safari, or OmniWeb.

Other than that, the sites render quite similarly.  The few links I tried worked.  
The combo-boxes seemed to work.

You should really pick up a mac to do some testing with and load it
up with those browsers (plus Firefox and iCab).  Brand new 17" eMacs
are $700, although a iBook or PowerBook are much more svelt.  You
just might find yourself preferring it to a Window's PC (I certainly did).
