I've got a problem with an <iframe> and css.  Basically, the code seems to run fine and display correctly in Firefox.  However, when I run the same page in IE 6 & 7, it does not display.  I've tried customising the css - but still the iframe does not display correctly.

If you have a look at this page, you will see the problem.

In Firefox, you will notice that some text ("You should view this text here"), displays after the image.  However, in IE, the text does not appear correctly.  Why is this??  

I'm trying to write the iframe using document.write so that it is created dynamically.  I'm also writing the css style using the same method.  

    document.write("<style type=\"text/css\">");
    document.write("div#frame, div#image {      float: left; margin: 0px 0px 0px 150px;}");          

    document.write("<div id=\"frame\">");
    document.write("<iframe src=\"" + wID + "&cid=" + cID + "&host="+ + "&platform=" + window.navigator.platform + "&href=" + window.location.href + "&appName=" + window.navigator.appName + "\"");
    document.write("height=\"100\" width=\"768\" frameborder=\"0\" scrolling=\"no\"");
    document.write("Alternative text for browsers that do not understand IFrames.");
