You are missing <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "">

The triangle is "images/cursor.gif", line 18 of your source.

Make <span id="Sidebar" a 'div'.  'span' is not a block element so it can't contain the 'div's below it.

You need to put a closing tag on the <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />  and the left/right quotes around “bottle law” are not 'legal' UTF-8 characters.  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=Windows-1252" /> might fix those but it might break other things.  If your audience is all Microsoft Office users, you wouldn't have a problem.  If you have an international audience, changing those quotes to standard single and double quotes will work.

Correction: If you have an international audience, changing those quotes to standard single and double quotes will work with UTF-8.
