Odd gap in Internet Explorer

Hi,
I thought I had this problem solved a while back but it has come back to haunt me.  I updated some of the pages in the http://www.yethouse.co.uk site and now there has appeared a gap down the right hand side of the body - but only in all versions of internet explorer.
I have tried everything I can think of but I can't fix it.  Anybody got any ideas?

A screenshot of IE6 immediately reveals the problem (see attached) -- the slide-sideways slide show is not respecting the width of the rest of the page.  You need to control its width, and problem solved --

Zado: I seem to have the problem in IE8 too.  The link is to my previous question regarding the same site - so I know about that, thanks.

scrathcyboy: Thanks for taking a look for me.  This is odd as I can reproduce the slider not respecting the width but then if I click to one of the other pages the gap reappears and then if I click back to the home page the slider is the correct width (does not overflow) but the gap is there! Bizarre.

It's this white gap down the right hand side that is the problem:

IN your stacks_ie.css, you have a style named ".stacks_top" with a width of 99%

try removing the width.

Thanks Designbyonyx - that css is commented out so it doesn't have any effect.  I've solved the problem anyway now but thanks for taking a look

There is sufficiently accurate input by me and others that you should split points in this question.  Even if you solved it, nonetheless, our input did help, so the correct thing to do is to split amongst answers that lead you to solving the problem.  I am supposed to post an objection, which means getting mods involved -- But I am going to assume you can close this correctly yourself.

Actually scrathyboy your comment didn't really help I'm afraid.  I'm appreciative that you had a quick a look but your quick observations had nothing to do with the solution.  Whilst I am equally appreciative that other people also took the time to take a quick look, their comments could have been drawn from the last question I posted on this same topic and neither of them led in any way to a solution.  I do not wish to appear unappreciative but it is my firm belief that only comments that comments that lead at least partially to a solution should be awarded points.  I don't care for your patronising manner either.
