CSS Position Overlapping Image

I am struggling to get this page to display correctly in IE7: http://www.towkars.org/dmv-new.php

The page displays fine in Google Chrome and FireFox, but in IE7 the "Road Sign" image is partially cut off.  I want the full image to display, and to extend down the right side, without causing any text wrapping (from float), just as it does in FireFox / Chrome.  Essentially I just want to statically position the image at a certain pixel coordinate (relative to the other images on the page), and have the image  be on top of anything else.  I also did not have any luck using the z-index, as it does not seem to make any difference.

Thank you in advance!

For starters, change

<html>        
  <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">    

to

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
   "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>

Then change

<div style="margin-bottom:-100px;z-index:99">

to

<div style="margin-bottom:-100px;position:relative;z-index:99">


You'll also want to give the list there position:relative and a z-index higher than 99.

Are you aware that your page contains HTML and CSS errors?
