I have created a web page  using CSS and it works as I expect it to in all browsers I tested except IE for Mac.  The HTML is Valid as is the CSS.  The page simply will not load.  It must be able to be viewed in IE for Mac as well as the other browsers it already works in.  The URL is http://www.canton.edu   Any  help would be greatly appreciated.  I do need an urgent answer to this question.

It loads for me in  IE 5.2 for Mac  (although there's a lot of extra space above <!-- #BeginLibraryItem "/Library/form.lbi" --> compared to other browsers)

None of those were a problem.  That is a naming convention of the software that originally  created our website, over which I have no control.


I have solved the problem, several weeks ago.  It was truly a  bug in the way the CSS is read by IE for Mac.  It had to do with the size of an element contained in a div tag, which immediately followed the last float command.  In other words, the jump menu was trying to occupy space larger than the width of a column it was trying to move into, eventhough it was not supposed to occupy that space.

Thanks for your input.
