Internet explorer 8 destroys the layout of my site

Hi, I had changed some bits to make my site work with internet explorer as well, but there still is one page remaining which it really truly destroys, it has to do with the css but i have no idea which rule it is  => firefox no problem  => ie 8 screws up  => firefox & ie 8 both no problem

The only difference is that i have been changing the css stylesheet, i really can not think of any css rule that would make any browser display every word on a new line, without using line breaks after each word, can anyone help ?

There are 26 or so errors, they were 65 in the beginning but since these errors are prevent on both the sites, they are not the reason for ie screwing up, if you want me to paste the whole style sheets let me know

    Each browser has a different way of dealing with errors.  I would get the other 26 errors cleaned up.  It actually looks like you are down to 24.  

    What errors are you seeing in ie?

    Ooops indeed, I had installed a firefox extension which would emulate internet explorer, and so I trusted that if it would screw up there, then it would screw up in the real internet explorer too, but indeed this is not the case, thank you for helping me out, I will split the points if that is ok with the both of you
