I seem to have a number of layout issues in ie6

1) Header has extra space at the bottom

2) 1st and last menu buttons are a strange width causing menu to drop on to 2 lines

3) Sidebars seem to grow in width

Can you help?

I think you need make it clear in IE9 first.
Your page completed in HTML5, so your should expect many problem in IE6, IE7, but you can avoid it by following rules here: http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/html-css-techniques/how-to-make-all-browsers-render-html5-mark-up-correctly-even-ie6/
Try it and layout issues will be sorted.

your layout should be as follows:
#  <body>  
#         <header>  
#             <!-- ... -->  
#         </header>  
#  
#         <div id="container">  
#             <!-- ... -->  
#         </div>  
#  
#         <footer>  
#             <!-- ... -->  
#         </footer>  
#     </body>

Unfortunately I cannot change all aspects of the layout, in the CMS.

But I'm not sure that if I did/could change the layout as suggested that would cure the issues that I a experiencing, which seem unrelated to the above?

Try:
specify width of #main_menu ul.level_1 for example width:931px;
specify width of .box_container for example width:218px;

not a solution but useful notification for IE6 users: http://www.neoease.com/lets-kill-ie6/

Ok let's be more specific,
Add width:931px; for #header .inside
Add width:960px; for #container
Add height:150px; for .ce_text
Add height:30px; for .formod_navigation
Add height:10px; for.mod_breadcrumb
Add margin-top:250px; for #container for IE6 and IE5 ONLY
Add width:218px; for .box_headline for IE6 and IE5 ONLY
Add width:202px; for .box_headline for IE7 ONLY

1) Give "width:100%" to "#main_menu ul.level_1".

2) Give "float:left" to both "#main_menu ul.level_1 li a.l1.first" and "#main_menu ul.level_1 li a.l1.last".

3) One of the scripts is causing problems with the developer tools in IE6, so debugging that is difficult. I suspect changes that the PIE script makes are causing the sidebar to be too wide. Does temporarily disabling it make a difference?

Thanks Kravimir, that works a treat, menu is now sorted in IE6.

Are you able to assist with the left content boxes expanding more that they ought?

Thanks again.
