This page looks fine in IE8 and FF but not in IE6 or IE7

The problem with the breadcrumb trail in IE6/IE7 is that the last item (Research and writing) is displaying over two lines.
The whole item, 'Research and writing' should go down one line.

I'm not able to get the ndlrnstage subdomain to respond, so am unable to see your code.  Can you provide the css and html for this area or an accessible link?
