why is my Verisign script showing up in the wrong place randomly?

I have a Verisign seal on my page, but randomly it appears above where it is supposed to. If you look at the page http://www.cheaperthancatalogs.com, you can see the verisign seal under the category list on the left side. Now picture it in the middle of the categories, covering the text. That is what is happening. It appears to be directly above where its supposed to. Is is not to the left or right, it is but above it, near the top of the list of categories.

Unfortunately I don't know how to generate this so I can't show you an example, but I have customers calling telling me it is happening. If I can catch it I will post a screen shot.

Does anyone have any ideas of why this script would randomly show up in the wrong place? I have the code attached. I can also post the code of side_nav.asp (an included file on the template) if it is necessary.
<CENTER>
<DIV STYLE="position: relative; right: 5px;">
<SCRIPT SRC="https://seal.verisign.com/getseal?host_name=www.cheaperthancatalogs.com&size=M&use_flash=YES&use_transparent=YES&lang=en"></SCRIPT>
</DIV>
</CENTER>

It almost certainly will depend on which browser and version they are using, that is the main source of different screen renderings.  In Mozilla, SeaMonkey and Firefox 2 it looks fine, and in IE6 it looks the same.  Those four browsers are all I can test in at the moment.

You could try leaving off the relative position, that is usually implied --
<DIV STYLE="position:right: 5px;">

Wait for input from others !!!

Yeah, I usually just test in IE7 and FireFox 3, and I don't see this happening.

Originally I had this problem in IE when there was no doctype, but after adding one it seemed to go away in IE7.

So the solution was the div tags in IE6, I was able to test it by downloading and installing IE6, sure enough there it was popping up in the wrong place when I opened the page. So I took the DIV tags out and it shows in the correct place ... well, 5 pixels to the left anyway ;)  I guess I can deal with it. I'm not sure why you wouldn't have seen it in IE6, however.

For anyone who wants to test there pages in multiple versions of IE6, I downloaded this: http://tredosoft.com/Multiple_IE - seems to work nicely.

Anyway thanks for the help, scrathcyboy.

5 pixels is nothing to worry about.  It is when your data overwrites some other part of the page, that is where you start to panic.  Good luck.
