php not rendering navigation in IE6

I am using php to render a drop down menu. It works fine in all new browsers, IE7 and up and works fine in firefox. When I use the script in IE6 none of the navigation displays. Below is my attached CSS. I have also attached the div that holds the navigation. I am really lost and not sure where to start...Thanks

remove the line:
* html #nav li a{margin-right:1px;} /* ie6 only */
... and the menu will re-appear, seems strange though that it would cause the menu to vanish.

This looks like a haslayout issue. You can fix it by doing the following:

The drop down menu doesn't work but I guess that is a separate issue?
#nav{margin:0px; padding:0px; list-style-type:none;  z-index:9; position:relative;zoom:1;}
