IE out of whack

If you look at http://mells.biz, you'll notice that the page structure is out of alignment, with content forced to the right in IE as opposed to Firefox. Why is this and what can be done to rectify it?

It appears that IE is set to show the website in compatibility view. Try in normal view. P.S. just tested and found the same to be true on my PC

When on the website take a look at the web address text field near the top of your IE8 window (where the www.whatever.com is typed). Directly to the right you should see a button that basically looks like a piece of paper torn across the middle. This is the "compatibility view" function.  See here:

If I activate that function in my IE8 the website you mentioned is "out of whack". When I deactivate the function it is viewed just fine. Try it....
