I thing it would be a lot easier for us if you can describe what is the problem in detail rather than
saying My site is not showing well in IE.  Can you please tell us whats wrong? Whats the expected outcome?  Possibly sending us screenshot will help as well...

Not enough information. Your page contains six stylesheets (you posted one), two external javascript files, plus images. The markup you pasted is peppered with this html entity:&#9; It should be in a code block. A live link would be much easier to troubleshoot.

Please post a live link.  Also, please make a Google search for "quirks mode" and learn about those principles.  There may not be a quick fix here, and cross-browser compatibility is almost always a moving target.
