Why are these centered in Internet Explorer?

On this home page the boxes of text seem centered, so they're crashing into their associated images.

Fails on IE, seems ok on Firefox.

I can't find the CSS that fixes it. Does anyone know?

Maybe you don't have problem with your code.
This problem caused by the fact that you have enabled the compatibility view in the IE9.
Try to disable the compatibility view and you'll see that everything will line up perfect.

Oh IE9, what a mess. So anyone who looks at the site in compatability view will see this error?

I think yes, if you want to do something for this issue, try to find a way to detect if the user has active the IE compatibility view and then alert him that he has to disable this feature
in order to navigate through your site properly.

Is IE this much of a problem to other people? The site works great everywhere else (other browsers).

Personally (and many many other developers, believe me) I don't care about the IE anymore! :-)
