We have built a wordpress theme for a local hospital and need a workaround for the site in IE 6,7.  Can anyone take a look and put us on the right track to get this adjusted?  Thanks.

You really have to make a stance and properly educate users/clients about updating their browser - IE6 is dead - and 7 is following shortly. It's not just about how a browser displays a page, it's also about security, performance, and functionality.

That said, you might want to consider using Google Chrome Frame - it requires a clientside browser plugin but might be a workaround for you.

You may also solve some of your issues using IE6/7 conditional CSS

Lastly, you can also check the user-agent/browser to see if it's IE6/7 (using javascript or preferably serverside check) and redirect the user to an alternate (ie6/7-friendly) page/site. For example, the user agent server variable in PHP is $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']
