Contents shift down in IE 6

Why does my content/navigation  move down to the bottom of the page in IE6 on a pc?

#sidebar1 {
	float: left; /* since this element is floated, a width must be given */
	width: 191px; /* the actual width of this div, in standards-compliant browsers, or standards mode in Internet Explorer will include the padding and border in addition to the width */
	padding:0;
	margin:0;
}
#sidebar2 {
	float: right; /* since this element is floated, a width must be given */
	width: 168px; /* the actual width of this div, in standards-compliant browsers, or standards mode in Internet Explorer will include the padding and border in addition to the width */
	padding:0;
	margin:0;
}
 #mainContent { 
	width:540px;
	margin: 0 0 0 191px; /* the right and left margins on this div element creates the two outer columns on the sides of the page. No matter how much content the sidebar divs contain, the column space will remain. You can remove this margin if you want the #mainContent div's text to fill the sidebar spaces when the content in each sidebar ends. */
	padding: 0; /* remember that padding is the space inside the div box and margin is the space outside the div box */
	background-color:#fff;
}

Open in new window

First thing to do is to give ul#main-nav margin-left:0

Next give #mainContent float:left and remove its left margin.

Also that logo image needs to have display:block

worked perfectly!  only one small unrelated (?)  issue and that is on safari on a mac, at the bottom of the page below the "ground" is a white band and the background image continues.  Is this just a browser issue?  Should I open another ticket?

Glad to hear it.

My BrowserCam screenshots of Safari 2, 3.2.1, and 4.0b (in 1024x768) don't seem to show a white band there. What version(s) and screen resolution(s) did you look at?

Problem solved by putting background in container.  I tried to find where I asked you about this and could not locate the question.  I forgot I inserted in as part of another question.  Sorry for the bother on your part.  

p.s.  I checked out your website.  It looks pretty helpful.  In my spare time I hope to look it over in more detail.  : )
