Cross-Browser Compatible CSS Snippet

The following XHTML and the attached CSS works fine in most browsers; however, in some browsers such as IE 6 it gets all out of whack. Is there anyway I can optimize this code to work in IE 6 and beyond. A working example of this code can be found here: http://www.emarketbuilders.com/portfolio/

<div class="holder" style="margin-bottom:10px ">
  <div class="pcontainer">
    <div class="pphoto"></div>
    <div class="ptext">
      <div class="arrowlink" style="float:right ">
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>
.holder{overflow:auto}

div#pcontatiner{float: left; width: 501px; margin: 10px 0px 0px 0px}

div.pphoto{float: left; width: 150px; margin:10px 5px 10px 10px}

div.ptext{float: left; width: 331px; margin: 10px 0px 10px 0px}

Do I stick that right in the CSS so the end result would be as attached?
.holder{overflow:auto}

div#pcontatiner{float: left; width: 501px; margin: 10px 0px 0px 0px}

div.pphoto{float: left; width: 150px; margin:10px 5px 10px 10px}

div.ptext{float: left; width: 331px; margin: 10px 0px 10px 0px}

<!--[if lte IE 6]>

<style type="text/css">

.holder{overflow:auto}

div#pcontatiner{width: 501px; margin: 10px 0px 0px 0px}

div.pphoto{width: 150px; margin:10px 5px 10px 10px}

div.ptext{width: 331px; margin: 10px 0px 10px 0px}

</style>

<![endif]-->

No, that would go in the head of your page between the <head> and </head> tags... so it would look like:
<html>

<head>

<title>Blah</title>

<style type="text/css">

These are your normal styles here...

</style>
 

<!--[if lte IE 6]>

<style type="text/css">

.holder{overflow:auto}

div#pcontatiner{width: 501px; margin: 10px 0px 0px 0px}

div.pphoto{width: 150px; margin:10px 5px 10px 10px}

div.ptext{width: 331px; margin: 10px 0px 10px 0px}

</style>

<![endif]-->

</head>

<body>

body stuff...

</body>

</html>

That means the browser knows to render that CSS if it's IE6 instead of the CSS that exists further down the page? Where can I read more about that type of stuff (<!--[if lte IE 6]>)?

that basically says if the browser is Less Than or Equal to Internet Explorer 6, then apply whatever is contained within the "if" statement...
