Clients wants simple "coming soon" page.  Why does the copy bump down below the lady on the left in IE?  There is plenty of room to fit.

it's because of your margins for your .twoColFixLt #mainContent css rules.  IE automatically puts elements on a new line if they don't fit in the width specified.

try making the left margin 0px and then removing the specified width of that div.  the problem is a margin is added to a div's width.  You have specified a width for the containing div, so it is trying to fit it all int here but failing miserably.

I implemented your solution but then was having problems with the lady image breaking by the finger tips.  I made it one image and removed all "border" lines but that leads to another problem.  I will award you points on this one.  Look for another post on this site.

are the changes implemented now?  It appears it's all lined up in Firefox.  IE is still broken pushing it down.  Try removing the right margin as well and see if it fixes it in IE.

I redid "lady" image so it is one image and then I don't have to worry about fingers not lining up with body.  I implemented your changes and that seemed to work.  Thank you.
