It should work now:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>test</title>
<!--[if lt IE 9]>
        <script src="http://html5shim.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js"></script>
<![endif]-->
<!-- CSS -->

<style type="text/css">
#bg {background: #9E1110; height:4px; margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px; }
#bg2 {background: #dddddd; height:2px; margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px; }
</style>

<style type="text/css">
/*<![CDATA[*/
 div.c1 {margin-left: 2em}
/*]]>*/
</style>
</head>

<body>
	<div id="bg"></div>
	<div id="bg2"></div>
	<div class="c1" id="top">top menu</div>
	<div id="banner">banner here</div>
	<div class="c1" id="menu">mainMenu</div>
	<div id="pathway">pathway</div>
	<div id="separator"></div>
	<div id="content">content here</div>
	<div id="right">right content here</div>
	<div id="ads">ads here</div>
	<div id="footer">footer</div>
</body>
</html>

I apologize, I may have misunderstood your question.

The code you posted is mal-formed XHTML, but more reasonable HTML 5.  The <div>'s can't legally exist outside the <body> and your browser was making its best attempt at trying to render a reasonable page.  

You may want to see if there's a way to hint HTML 5 for  "< IE9"  browsers in order to help them understand what you intend with that code.
